Community Brass Welcomes new Music Director

The Glenorchy City Concert Brass warmly welcomes Martin (Marty) Smith, as our new Community Band Music Director. He will be a great asset to the organisation and we look forward for Marty and the Community Band making some great music. A brief biography is included below.

Martin Smith is a trombone player and graduate from the University of Tasmania and University of Melbourne. As well as teaching brass, performing, and conducting locally here in Tasmania and in Melbourne with a variety of different ensembles, Marty has spent several years overseas performing, directing, and teaching music. He was head of music at a prestigious international school in Bangkok, performing regularly with local orchestras, brass quintets and contemporary bands, and then later moved to Hawaii, taking up a job as music teacher and band director at a small pre-college IB school in Kailua. Returning to Australia at the start of 2017, Marty is now back in Hobart playing tenor and bass trombone, working on a master’s degree in education, teaching music and developing a band program at Dominic College.
