DIRECTOR: GUY COX
Guy is thrilled and honoured to be directing QYWE. Having played in elite high school bands and youth orchestras across Nova Scotia, he is only too aware of how such musical experiences can be life-altering.
Guy's positive high school music experiences led him to McGill to pursue a bachelor of Music Performance, to which he later added studies in music education. Throughout his degree, Guy was a member of the McGill Wind Symphony, Brass Choir, Early Music Ensemble and McGill Symphony Orchestra.
Seeking additional playing and employment opportunities, Guy became a member of the Canadian Armed Forces as a musician. He played for the Ceremonial Guard in Ottawa, and has been a member of the 438 Squadron Air Force band for the past twenty years.
Guy has been teaching music in Montreal schools since 1996.
