About Me

So, what do you want to know exactly? I was born in Oldham, Lancashire, but have lived in Finchley, North London for most of my adult life. I cycle to work (also in Finchley) as long as it’s not raining. I have a beautiful wife and two musically gifted sons and am Managing Director of the music publishing company Stainer & Bell. Other than that, I play squash, I play the trumpet, I like to eat, sleep and all the usual stuff. Oh…and I’ve had a couple of musical puzzle books published.

I expect that’s far more than you needed or wanted to know, but you’ve read it now, so there you go.

P.S. I also run a tribute website for my former trumpet teacher, mentor and general guru figure John Wilbraham.
