Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Banister (1630–3 October 1679) was an English musical composer and violinist. Banister was the son of one of the waits of the parish of St. Giles-in-the-Fields, and that profession he at first followed. His father was his first instructor, and he arrived at such proficiency on the violin that Charles II became interested in him and sent him for further education to France. On his return, Charles II appointed him to the post of leader of his own band, vacated by the death of Baltzar in 1663. About 1666–7 he is said to have been dismissed by the king for an impertinent remark concerning the appointment of French musicians to the royal band. This seems to be referred to in Pepys's Diary, date 20 February 1666–7, although Banister's name occurs in a list of the King's Chapel in 1668.
