Gareth Curcher, in my opinion is one of the country's (if not the world's) finest composers, conductors and teaching talents. He is also a world class trombone player. I have played under many conductors during my career, and Gareth has a remarkable way of pushing a band to the finest it can be. He has a spookily accurate ear for abject perfection from whoever is playing under him, and is able to extract the maximum musicality from players, whether young and inexperienced or old pros. I am a musician in one of the finest bands on the planet, and would still go to Gareth for opinion and direction. I have also taught alongside Gareth, and can honestly say he is an absolutely fantastic talent when it comes to raising passion for music and technical ability from students. Penultimately, Gareth is a world class arranger and his transcriptions are ALWAYS perfect. Finally, I need say nothing of his compositions, as they most definately speak for themselves as you can hear. On top of all this, Gareth is also a dedicated father and husband and has a wonderful family. I am proud and honoured to count Gareth as a friend and colleague.
