Qualifications/ Educational Background

Before university he spent 5 months in Vienna studying 12 note technique with a former pupil of Schoenberg.  Although he has not used this system in his own compositions this was a strong influence in his creative development. He studied violin, piano and singing as a young child and was a pupil of Hans Jelinek (Vienna Academy) and Egon Wellesz (Oxford University), both former students of Arnold Schoenberg, and of his father, the late Bernard Rose.
