Tim Ferrier

Tim Ferrier (b. 1971) graduated from UNSW (Sydney Australia) in 1994 with a Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Education double degree. But rather than teach in the classroom chose the band room and has been conducting band programs in Sydney's north for over 25 years. Tim has played French horn in bands since high school, but most notably the Australian Wind Orchestra in 1995. He is a foundation member of the North West Wind Ensemble - winner of numerous state and national band titles. While completing his degree at UNSW he studied French horn with Clarrie Mellor (Principal horn Sydney Symphony Orchestra). He has been composing band music on and off for about 20 years but started selling as a self publisher in 2009. Since his first success writing for the Dickson's Music Yamaha Band Festival (Sydney's biggest band festival at the time), he has been commissioned to write a number of works for school and community bands by some of Sydney's most notable band directors. On three occasions Tim was invited to be the resident composer for the North Shore Primary School Band Festival (2012, 2016 and 2019). A number of his works are currently on Test Piece lists for the NSW State Band Championships and school festival lists in Queensland and Victoria. His new music is featured at the reading days in NSW, Queensland and Victoria and at the Australian National Band and Orchestra Conference (ANBOC).
