Bryan Kidd began his professional music career in 1971 as a band director teaching grades 7 through 12 at Hayfield Secondary School in Fairfax County , Virginia . In 1976 he joined the United States Navy Band in Washington , D.C. as a Staff Arranger, retiring as the band’s Chief Composer and Arranger in 2002. Performances of Mr. Kidd’s music through Navy Band concerts, recordings, and television appearances have spanned the globe – from the White House to Carnegie Hall to St. Petersburg, Russia.

Mr. Kidd’s particular affinity for big band swing and jazz is evident in the music he has written for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, under the direction of Buddy Morrow; the Glenn Miller Orchestra, directed by Larry O’Brien; the Terry Meyers Orchestra, Baltimore's Zim Zemarel Orchestra; and the Rory Partin Orchestra from Nashville.

Currently, Mr. Kidd is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Music at his alma mater, Shenandoah University , where he directs the university’s jazz ensemble. Since 1996 he has received ASCAP’s Standard Award for the music he has written for middle and high school jazz ensemble, band and orchestra, in addition to consistent endorsements as an “Editor’s Choice” by J.W. Pepper.
