Mike McCawley - Tuba / Low Brass - Teaches advanced students – Utah County
Michael was born in England and immigrated to Saskatoon, Canada at age 9. He began playing in the school band in grade 7. Tuba was not his first choice of instrument (it was trombone), but as he was the only student tall enough to hold the school's instrument the decision was made for him.
Michael completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Saskatchewan and played in a variety of groups throughout the area. In 1984 he moved to Windsor, Ontario as principal tuba of the Windsor Symphony as well as performing regularly with Orchestra London, the Thunder Bay Symphony as well as a number of brass chamber ensembles throughout Ontario and Michigan. Michael was also publicist and concert manager for the School of Music at the University of Windsor during this time.
In 1990 Michael moved to Provo with his family. Since then he has pursued an active musical life including performances with the Utah Symphony, the Ballet West Orchestra (principal tuba since 1993), Utah Premiere Brass, Utah Wind Symphony, as well as numerous chamber ensembles and recording sessions. He has been adjunct professor of tuba, euphonium and brass chamber music at Weber State and Utah State Universities.
