Biography Books of music out numbered all others in my childhood household, my mother played the piano and the piano accordion and my father both made and played the Northumbrian Pipes. Both were involved in the early folk music revival during the nineteen fifties and sixties.
At the age of twelve there being no piano in the house and the piano accordion was far from being a cool instrument to play, he bought a second hand "Paragon" acoustic guitar made by Clifford Essex from a fellow pupil at school. Preferring to play the guitar with his fingers the plectrum was thrown away within the first fortnight after buying the guitar.
I did not follow music as a career but, became an apprentice electrical fitter and armature winder. At the end of my apprenticeship I had gained a HNC in Electronics and Physics.
With this qualification I became a development engineer mainly working upon the control of D.C. motors for electric vehicles using microprocessors.
Now that I am retired I have plenty of time to devote to music, playing the Guitar and teaching myself orchestration and writing music using Sibelius.
