Born in 1947, John Frith’s musical studies began in 1965 at Dartington College of Arts where he studied the horn and composition. These studies continued at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Anthony Halstead (horn) and Edmund Rubbra (composition) winning the School Brass Prize in 1971 and the Composition Prize in 1972.
John then embarked upon a professional freelance horn-playing career where he appeared with the LSO and other London orchestras.
His work in education took him first to Abingdon School and then Northampton Music School, Oundle School and Worcester Youth Music where he is now involved in creative music projects in primary schools.
Much of John Frith’s music has been published, broadcast and recorded. His works range from solo songs, part songs and choral settings (with brass and organ) to a Symphony and a setting of Robert Browning’s The Pied Piper of Hamlin for narrator, dancer and full orchestra (commissioned by Worcester Instrumental Service).
