Bio

Bryan Maurer (M.M.E.) is the Music Coordinator and Front Ensemble Caption Head for Dominion Storm Indoor Drumline, an independent open class ensemble from Virginia Beach, Virginia. WGI reviewers have said his music, “turned UD Arena into an uptown dance club... with a driving shuffle beat which had the crowd clapping along.”

Currently, Bryan is an active performer and educator in the Hampton Roads, Southeastern Virginia region.  His positions include: instructor of music theory and history at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia; percussionist with The Tidewater Winds concert band; drummer for the professional night club band Monkey Booty; drummer for Angora Tribal dance troupe from Williamsburg, Virginia and percussion instructor at Music and Arts Centers in Chesapeake, Virginia. 

Mr. Maurer's competitive ensembles have been very successful. Dominion Storm has won the 2008, 2009, and 2010 Atlantic Indoor Association (PIA) championships and the 2012 WGI Richmond Regional (PIA). Bryan has won two high percussion awards at the USSBA national championships held in Maryland. 

Finding a passion for writing percussion music, he studied under Dr. Adolphus Hailstork and Dr. Andrey Kasparov at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA, earning his Bachelors of Music Composition (B.M.) degree in 2007 and earning awards F. Ludwig Diehn Scholar, Vogan Music Scholarship, and the S. Eliot Breneiser Memorial Scholarship.  In 2010, he was awarded his Master of Music Education (M.M.E.) degree in applied percussion studies from Old Dominion University under David Walker—Wheaton Conservatory of Music (B.M.) and The University of Michigan (M.M.).
