2020 – Musical Director Warriparinga Brass (C Grade Brass)  

Warriparinga Brass was excited to welcome Sarah Butler for the first half of 2020 - an experienced musician and music educator, and a frequent guest in our Marion City Band line up.

Formal qualifications include a Bachelor of Music, Honours Bachelor of Music Performance in Trumpet and a Graduate Diploma of Education from The University of Adelaide. Sarah is a highly proficient musician, teacher and conductor. Her passionate and enthusiastic approach to share the gift of music with others has inspired them to be the best they can be. She has undertaken studies in conducting through Griffith University.     Sarah’s performance experience have included playing with Unley Concert Band, Kensington & Norwood Brass Band, Elder Conservatorium Wind Ensemble, Elder Conservatorium Brass Ensemble, Hahndorf Town Band, Mitcham City Band and other community bands.

Sarah’s previous conducting roles were with Hahndorf Town Junior Band, Campbelltown City Junior Band, Kensington and Norwood Youth Brass Band and Port Augusta Concert Band and her roles as a music educator have included  Kimba Area School, Unity College, Department for Education Instrumental Music based in Port Augusta and most recently Department for Education Instrumental Music based at Belair Primary School.  She has taught both classroom and instrumental music and has developed her skills on a wide range of instruments. Her current role includes teaching brass, woodwind, and percussion instruments across multiple sites and directing student ensembles at these sites.

Interests outside of music include strength training and competing in the sport of powerlifting.  She is passionate about the area of athletes, team building and the arts.

Sadly she is not continuing in this role, however Warriparinga Brass (and Marion) appreciate and have enjoyed the time she has spent with us.       


WE ARE STILL ON THE SEARCH for a Musical Director, or suitably qualifed conductors to guide our bands through the rest of 2020 and beyond - so please contact us for more information if you are interesting in applying.
