The Band Music of Timothy Loest

Scheduling an Appearance

Imagine your students working directly with the composer! Think of the insight gained as they rehearse, ask questions, and perform with a nationally known composer, arranger and music educator!

Mr. Loest makes five kinds of appearances: 1) Honor Band, 2) Guest Conducting, 3) Commission Premier, 4) Educational Clinic, and 5) New Music Reading Session. Whether appearing locally or across country, Mr. Loest brings a straightforward rehearsal plan, clear conducting skills, and inspiring motivational strategies that reach the musician in memorable ways. As Bethany, a Georgia band student stated after a recent festival:

I would like to thank Mr. Loest for his dedication and hard work...I thought that when I came to rehearsal that I knew a lot about being a musician. It turns out that I didn't. Mr. Loest taught me so much more than being a good musician. He also taught me how to be a better person, and I commend him for that.

For information regarding appearances, please contact Mr. Loest.
