Welcome to the Buglers Hall of Fame

John Meehan

...
Without the lifelong guidance, direction and love of my father, Buglers Hall of Fame member Jack Meehan, none of this would have been possible.
John performed his first Trumpet recital for the students of his Kindergarten class in Casper, Wyoming, and from that point forward, knew music was his life. From being presented with the Louis Armstrong Award in Junior High School and the John Phillip Sousa Award in High School, to marching with all 3 groups in The Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps (including the 1986 D.C.I. Championship season as a rookie Soprano player) and performing with his High School Jazz Ensemble in Hawaii, and his College Jazz Ensemble throughout Europe, John fills his life with music.
John currently spends most of his time working with all 3 groups in The Blue Devils organization as Brass Caption Head for the 15 time D.C.I. Champion 'A' Corps, and Music Director and Brass Arranger for the 'B' and 'C' Corps. Since joining the brass staff of The Blue Devils in 1994, John has helped the 'A' Corps win 9 D.C.I. Championships and 11 Jim Ott High Brass Awards, while also building the 'B' and 'C' Corps programs to the strongest they've ever been.
John has been composing and arranging for marching band and drum corps since 1992. Current and past groups include Ayala High School (2013 Bands of America Grand National Finalist), American Fork High School (from Utah), Clements High School (from Texas), Eden Prairie and Marshall High Schools (from Minnesota), Amador Valley, Homestead, Upland and James Logan High Schools (from California), Shijonawate Gakuen High School and the Yokohama Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps (from Japan) as well as the Mosson Drum & Bugle Corps from Italy and the Pacific Crest Drum & Bugle Corps from Diamond Bar, California. Mentored by numerous arrangers in the marching activity (including BHOF member Wayne Downey), John strives to provide innovative, fresh and timely shows for band directors and corps managers all over the world.
...
Outside of his active involvement in the marching arts, John also does as much original writing as possible.
...
John is a Conn Selmer artist, and exclusively uses Sibelius notation software.

Episode 78: Interview with John Meehan, Brass Caption Head for the Concord Blue Devils
...
Hosts: Al Perkins, Chris Nalls, John Meehan
...
John Meehan is the head horn instructor for the Concord Blue Devils. John's father Jack Meehan is in the Drum Corps Hall of Fame. John is the Brass Caption Head for the Blue Devils A corps, and writes the music for the B and C corps. John grew up with Drum Corps. He marched in Blue Devils C corps in 1980, 81 and 82; then the B corps in 83, 84 and 85; then the A corps in 86, 87, 88 and 89. He started teaching in 1990. He aged out in 1992 and started teaching with is father for the Santa Clara Vanguard. After taking some time off, he joined the Blue Devils staff in 1994. From 94 to 2006 he was the Mellophone Tech. 2006 was John's first year as Brass Caption Head, where he does much less teaching. Blue Devils now march 76 horns, which includes 16 Mellophones, which can split up to four ways. In 1994 there were 4 Mellophones and 10 Flugelhorns. By 1997 it was all Mellophones. Mellophone is tricky to teach because the players come from different places - either a trumpet player or French Horn player, or sometimes neither. John is working with System Blue to develop a new line of mouthpieces.
