Stuart Quinlan - our MD

Stuart is currently Head of Brass at Watford Grammar School for Boys, and also works as a Conductor at both Harrow Young Musicians, and for Harrow Youth Brass Band. He is a part-time Brass Teacher for the Hertfordshire Music Service and also teaches privately.

Stuart started playing Cornet at the age of 10, playing in various groups including his high school brass band. He eventually went on to study music at Kingston University, having lessons with Colin Clague (Principal Trumpet, English National Opera). He joined his local brass band, Grimsdyke Brass, at the age of 15 and re-joined after returning from his musical studies. He still plays with them today.

When time permits he turns his attention to composing and his Sonata for Trumpet and Piano was performed in 2019 at the Duke’s Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, and he also composed the opening Fanfare to the Barnet Music Service Extravaganza in 2010.

For reasons he still doesn’t understand he took up jogging in 2018 and ran the Paris Marathon the following year in a very respectable 4h 56m (achieved without pacemakers). He hopes to beat this time in Brighton in 2020!
