Prep school
1968-1974
Lived in Middleton St George, near Darlington. When not playing the piano, singing or composing I was to be found at Raventhorpe Preparatory School, Darlington getting into trouble. Joined village church choir as an alto; favourite hymn, When morning gilds the skies . Passed Grade 6 piano under the kind tutelage of Mrs Raine and Mrs Overend. Mother very involved with my piano-practice. Father played me records of Verdi, Puccini and Britten operas. Saw The Magic Flute at Darlington Civic Theatre.
