I was born and educated in England and have lived most of my life in London, where I am currently based. My home is now in the developing Docklands area near Canary Wharf, east of the City – a stimulating and lively place to be.

For several years I worked in Harrods, the world’s most exciting department store, and met many famous (and infamous) celebrities among its clientele.

 

I now lecture regularly to societies and music and arts groups around the UK, which appreciate the affectionate humour and freshness of approach that I aim to bring to my favourite topics; recently I’ve been fortunate to extend my audience range by lecturing on Cunard and Saga cruises in the Mediterranean and Baltic. All talks feature authentic recorded audio musical illustrations and, where a video/DVD facility is in place, visual illustrations too.

As writer I have collaborated with EMI and Pearl records on the compilation of CDs and written booklet essays for Naxos, Decca and Pearl operatic issues; as an accredited reference in Grove’s New Opera I gladly accept commissions for magazine notes, programme essays, artists’ biographies and CD booklets.

 

For relaxation, London’s theatreland provides wonderful entertainment; I love to travel throughout Europe and North America and enjoy studying the history of architecture (particularly the age of Sir Christopher Wren). I am a Freeman of the City of London, a Court member of the Worshipful Company of Musicians, a Fellow of the Institute of Musical Instrument Technology and a member of the Society of London Toastmasters; another passion is collecting musical autographs and research into my family’s history, which has taken me to many parts of England and to San Diego, California; and I fully appreciate my membership of the National Liberal Club, The Royal Over-Seas League, Mensa, the English National Trust and English Heritage.

I’m delighted to travel throughout the UK or overseas to lecture to groups on any of my topics. Please visit my website for more information.
