Gary Glover ARCM

The Director of Music

Gary Glover started his musical career at the age of four - reaching up to the piano keys and knocking out a tune. He took up the Cornet at school at the age of eleven and quickly became a leading light in his local brass band "The Tarmac Lyceum Brass Band" (Portsunlight). At sixteen he joined the Army as a musician where he studied at the Junior School of Music at Bassingbourne in Cambridgeshire. In 1981 he was awarded Bandsman of the Year.

Following several promotions, Gary went off to study at the Royal Military School of Music, Kneller Hall, having by this time transferred to the Euphonium. He studied under several leading musicians including Peter Wise, Rodney Bashford, George Evans and Trevor Sharp. Whilst at Kneller Hall Gary also managed to scoop four top awards, including the prestigious Worshipful Company of Musicians prize for the best overall Musician on the course (comprising some 180 Army musicians), and the Cassel Medal for academic studies including aural perception, harmony and instrumentation. It was at Kneller Hall that Gary also developed a flare for conducting.

Upon leaving Kneller Hall Gary served with the then named St. George's Band (Royal Regiment of Fusiliers - Queen's Division) until he went on to join the Nottinghamshire Police in 1985. Here, his talents were quickly identified and he became resident Bandmaster as well as solo Euphonium, a position he held for several years. In 1995 he was elected an Associate of the Royal College of Music and in November 1998 became the Director of Music for the then Nottinghamshire Police Wind Orchestra, now called the Nottinghamshire Police Band
