Band Member Profile

      
Stephen Philip Ward
Solo Tenor Horn & Bass Drummer  Joined: Mid 80's
I started learning to play the Tenor Horn in 1981 whilst in the Army at Pirbright. I was introduced to it by a Senior Drum Major in the Guards Division. I then learnt how to play over the next two years and I also played as a guest player with this band every time I was here on leave until I left the Army in 1992. I then joined the Royal Signals T. A. Band playing Saxophone until leaving in 2008. I joined Hurworth Band playing Bari-Sax and still enjoy both styles of music!

Steve was appointed Senior Drum Major of the Guards Division whilst in the Army and severed in the forces for 28 years then he served in the T. A. for another 16 years. Steve has traveled all over the world while with the forces and loved every minute of it. He is quite flexible as well and has also had a spell on drums and the Euphonium since he joined us full time here at Northallerton Silver Band. 

Steve has told us that his other interests are of course his Wife, Greta and their two children along with the two Grandchildren whom they all get a great deal of enjoyment from. His hobbies include Classic Cars, Military Figure Modeling and D. I. Y.
