Hailing from North Yorkshire, England, and growing up where brass banding was born, it wasn't long before Glenn picked up his first instrument.
Educated at Colchester Institute's School of Music under the leadership of former LSO trumpeter George Reynolds, Glenn has a rich background in brass banding that includes serving on solo horn with the Essex Police Band. He has performed at Buckingham Palace, The Royal Albert Hall, The Barbican, Westminster Abbey, and has participated in 18 overseas tours over the years.
A former British Police Officer himself and now a Human Resource Consultant, Glenn is the founder and first Musical Director of the NEBB and also serves on the Board of Directors for the North American Brass Band Association (NABBA).
Ron serves on the Board of Directors for the Nebraska Brass Band. He graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a specialization in Accounting and Real Estate. He has continued his education throughout the years obtaining the designations of Certified Public Accountant, Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, and Certified Financial Planner with his Masters Degree in Financial Planning.
Ron also holds the role of Lead Auditor on performance audits for the United States Air Force.
