Brian Sadler is a graduate of Pocono Mountain HS in northeastern Pennsylvania. Shortly after his senior year, instead of going to college he opted to join the US Navy as a musician. After basic training and graduating from the Armed Forces School of Music, Brian was sent to his first fleet band in Naples, Italy. During his three-year tour he performed in the big band, brass quintet, rock band, concert band, and ceremonial band. Brian got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform around Europe visiting countries such as Italy, Germany, Spain, England, Tunisia, Greece, Bosnia, and Croatia.
In January of 2005 Brian was sent to Navy Band Northwest at Bangor Sub-base near Seattle, WA. Brian takes classes from the Pacific Northwestern Film Scoring Program and constantly contributes arrangements and compositions to the Navy band. Brian is now attending Arizona State University and is pursing a career in film scoring.
Brian won 2nd place in the 2008 Humboldt Composition Contest with his brass septet "At the Movies." He also wrote "Action Fanfare" which earned him an award in the Dallas Wind Symphony Brass Fanfare Competition. We are proud to have published both of these winners.
