Judith Hayes

Growing up in the Salvation Army in Yorkshire, Judith Hayes was always destined to have brass bands as a first love; finding the different musical colours in what could be quite a limited palette has driven her compositions and arrangements for that genre. She has had her music performed and recorded by some of the world’s top brass bands, including the current world number one, Cory Band. She has only relatively recently discovered the delight of writing for the voice – but the excitement on hearing the dots on paper being turned into music by real people never pales.
