At this point in Ian’s career, he has been studying and performing the tuba for longer than he has been without the tuba. After completing his BMus at the University of Toronto, Ian’s pursuit of music as an academic endeavour led him to a Master of Music degree from the Boston Conservatory, and a Master of Science in Performance Science from the Royal College of Music in London, England.
Opportunities to perform is something that Ian thoroughly enjoys, and as a result he rarely turns away musical opportunities that afford him the chance to grow musically. He has performed as a soloist and musician with groups such as the Mississauga Symphony, the True North Brass, the Hannaford Street Silver Band, and has collaborated numerous composers to premiere various works. Ian is currently also a member of the EUBA quartet and Turbo Street Funk.
If there are limitations to be found in a tuba performance, they will undoubtedly not be coming from the bell of Ian Feenstra.
