Des Cannings - Musical Director (Junior Brass Band)


Des Cannings

After learning classical guitar for a number of years, Des Cannings finally discovered the Trombone at age twelve in his high school band. Since then he has been involved with a number of bands, including the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music's award-winning Wind Ensemble and their Jazz Orchestra, which recently toured the USA.

In 2009, Des formed what would become known as the South Coast Big Band, which he continues to direct and lead to this day. He also continues to be involved in local theatre productions and was recently chosen to represent the area in an Australian Opera and Ballet Orchestra program, playing principle trombone in 'Madame Butterfly'.

In late 2011, Des successfully received a distinction in his eighth grade trombone exam, and continues to grow as a musician. On leaving school, Des wishes to continue his study of music at a tertiary level.

Des is a multi-instrumentalist, being an accomplished player of euphonium, baritone, saxophone and trumpet. He is excited about being appointed as the Musical Director of the Junior Brass Band and is looking forward to teaching what will be the future of music in the area.

Des is also currently President and Musical Director of the South Coast Big Band.
