John Meehan Composer/Arranger
Since performing his first Trumpet recital for the students of his Kindergarten class, John knew music was his life. From being presented with the Louis Armstrong Award for Jazz in Junior High and the John Phillip Sousa Award in High School, to winning the Drum Corps International World Championship with the Concord Blue Devils and soloing in Germany with his College Jazz Ensemble, John just loves being involved in music.
John spends most of his time working with all three corps' in the Blue Devils organization as an instructor and arranger. Since 1994, John has helped the Blue Devil 'A' Corps win 6 D.C.I. World Championships and 9 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 bands and drum corps since 1992. During that time, he has written for such notable groups as the James Logan High School marching band, the Ooltewah High School marching band, the Ayala High School marching band, the Yamato Drum & Bugle Corps, the Yokohama Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps and the Beatrix Drum & Bugle Corps. Mentored by numerous arrangers in the marching activity (such as D.C.I. Hall Of Fame member Wayne Downey), John strives to provide innovative, fresh and timely shows for band directors and corps managers all over the world.
Composing for the album 'The Music Of WYLAND', scoring the film 'Mind Games' for a directorial graduate of the Academy Of Arts in San Francisco and being commission to compose his first concert band piece Circe's Curse have been major highlights for John.
John is a current endorser for Dynasty and Sibelius and does clinics all over the world for brass performance and technique.

Word had spread that John Meehan had challenged Scott to a pitching duel, and not wanting to miss this bout between staff and a member, a crowd began to gather.
As John was tossing his warm up pitches, Scott and the rest of the staff were all smiling and enjoying the speed (or lack of it) which was being produced during these pitches.
As John threw in his first offering, Scott swung (ready to end the whole thing) and fouled it off to the left.
Surviving the first pitch, John got the ball back and prepared for his second.The next two balls were outside and the count was now 2-1.Knowing he had little room for error against Scott, John dug in and hurled what would be his fastest pitch of the afternoon and got Scott to once again foul it off.More nervous now than performing in front of thousands of people with his horn, John contemplated the situation and what he should do next.Although he had done some pitching in Little League, John only had one pitch with any movement on it, and even then it usually didn't work.Realizing he still had two bad pitches left in the count, he decided to go for it and throw his sinker.
Scott was ready for the pitch as John went into his wind-up and released the ball.
John, the clear cut underdog, had prevailed!
Later, during the same dinner break, John was getting a well deserved rub down on his right arm from his father (DCI Hall of Fame member Jack Meehan) when a crumpled up $5 bill was thrown at him.
