The Rogerstone Community Band are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of our new Musical Director, Mr Robert Burnett.  

Rob started playing as a boy in the Salvation Army under the tutelage of his Father. After leaving the Salvation Army he went on to play Solo Euphonium with some of the top brass bands in Wales, these include, The Cory Band, Tredegar and Parc & Dare.

Having played under many of the very finest conductors in the Brass Band world he decided he would like to pass all that vast experience on and combine conducting with playing. He has coached and conducted many bands in South Wales including a spell as resident conductor with the Tredegar Band.

Travelling further afield he accepted invitations to conduct, teach and play throughout mainland Europe and Scandinavia.

After spending several years living in France, where Rob played and conducted with several music ensembles, he returned to South Wales and has been very busy since helping to coach several bands whilst maintaining his role as Solo Euphonium with the Mid Rhondda Band.

This is a very exciting time for The Rogerstone Community Band and we are looking forward to working with such an inspirational and talented conductor and bandsman.

We would like to extend our thanks and best wishes to Andy Wareham, who had directed the band from its re-launch in February 2017. Andy has decided to focus his time and effort on his studies and his extremely busy schedule with RWCMD and M2 brass band.
