John Ward's musical background is within The Salvation Army, which encouraged his early development. He developed an interest in conducting in this late teens and has since benefited hugely through mentorship from both Allan Withington and Ray Farr.

Since starting work with contesting bands, John has built up a record of consistent success, with a large number of prize-winning performances to his credit. He was shortlisted for the Assistant Directorship of the National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain and has conducted recording projects with Fairey (nominated for BBW and BB Recording of the Year), Reg Vardy, Leyland and Co-operative Funeralcare Bands, working with renowned soloists including Roger Webster, David Childs and Owen Farr.

A few years ago, John received an accreditation from Association of Brass Band Adjudicators and has since judged at the London and Southern Counties Regional Championship.
