Marching Division Manager
A drummer with Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Corps of Drums for 22 years, Stu has extensively travelled the world playing for the Royal Family and Heads of State. Stu has worked passionately with many national youth bands over the years and was appointed as President of the Traditional Youth Marching Band Association, a position he held for over 7 years. In 2016, Stu became a member of the United States National Association of Rudimental Drummers (NARD). Overseas, he is the Development Advisor for the Washington Tattoo and Percussion Advisor for the Liberty High School Grenadier Marching Band in Bethlehem, USA.
The world of marching drums is steeped in Stu’s blood. Even from a young age he was a martial music enthusiast, so much so that when other children used to walk to school listening to the latest chart music on their Walkman, Stu was listening to military marches and stepping out with a good 30” pace!
