Ben Promane, Music Teacher

Canadian-born trumpeter, Ben Promane is an emerging young artist based in Toronto, Ontario. He has performed with many professional ensembles including the Art of Time Ensemble, Talisker Players, Shaw Festival Orchestra, the Canadian Brass and Elora Festival Orchestra. This summer, he looks forward to his second national tour and recording project with the National Youth Orchestra of Canada under the direction of Michael Francis.

A 2014 finalist in the Orchestra Toronto Concerto Competition and 2015 prizewinner of the Glenn Gould School Chamber Music Competition, Ben is an active solo and chamber recitalist having recently performed in Heliconian Hall, Walter Hall, Mazzoleni Hall and Koerner Hall main stage.

Ben has been fortunate to play with many of Canada’s leading festival orchestras. He has spent recent summers studying at the Domaine Forget Brass Academy, and as Co-Principal Trumpet with l’Orchestre de la Francophonie in Montreal, Quebec; and the National Academy Orchestra of Canada in Hamilton, Ontario.

Currently, Ben is completing his final year of the Artist Diploma Program at the Glenn Gould School under the guidance of Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Trumpet, Andrew McCandless. He is a graduate from the University of Toronto Faculty of Music having studied with Anita McAlister and Jim Spragg.

Ben is equally passionate about education. He maintains a large brass studio at The Music Studio in Etobicoke and teaches regularly at Bayview Glen School and Havergal College. He has acted as music staff at the National Music Camp and as a music instructor for “Garage a Musique,” a Montreal-based initiative to give under-privileged students an opportunity to take private and group lessons. Ben currently holds the position of musical director of the Toronto Wind Youth Orchestra’s Concert Winds.
