Alan Fernie was born in the Scottish mining village of Newtongrange. At the age of 13, he learned to play trombone, both at school and with his local brass band.
After studying music in Glasgow and London, Alan spent a short period as an orchestral musician before transferring instrumental education. He taught in schools all over the East of Scotland for 20 years, during which time he has also conducted bands at all levels, winning many awards.
Alan started writing for brass whilst still a student, and his music is now published, performed and recorded throughout the world.
Currently living in the Scottish Borders, he is principally a composer but also finds time to conduct, teach, perform, adjudicate, lecture and compere, throughout the UK and beyond.
