Paul Drayton

born: 28 December 1944
country: United Kingdom

Paul Drayton gained the advanced piano performing diploma of the Royal Academy of Music while still only 16, then read for a music degree at Oxford, followed by a B.Mus. in composition. Alongside his day-job as a teacher he has performed several of the mainstream piano concertos, given informal lecture recitals and even appeared occasionally in a jazz trio.

Now living in Cornwall he is conductor of St Austell Choral Society and musical director of Duchy Opera, which recently premiered his opera The Hanging Oak. His compositions have been published, performed and broadcast worldwide, and he has enjoyed a particularly long relationship with The King’s Singers. His recent book Unheard Melodies, a light-hearted and non-technical guide to music, is available online at Amazon.com and his beginner’s piano guide Fun for Ten Fingers (OUP) has sold around 50,000 copies to date.
