A little bit about me.............................

I am a retired former solicitor. My wife Jean is a pianist and organist. After a ten year gap from national service to the birth of our third daughter ( a violinist, pianist and singer) I started playing in a string quartet led by my bank manager. Ten years later I joined the Southport Orchestra. Thanks to lessons with our leader Lesley I am still a member. I owe much to the conducting of Helen Hogg, Michael Walder and Gordon Hughes and now Jeff Rimmer.

My favourite composer is J S Bach and I like best his cantatas and the keyboard suites and chorale preludes my wife plays.I enjoy reading history and ethics books,watching skilful players of any moving ball and struggling to hit a stationary one.
