Paul Lennon

Paul is a composer/arranger, multi-instrumentalist and teacher.  He is a former pupil of Bishop Wordsworth School, Salisbury and former member and leader of the Wiltshire Youth and Salisbury Junior Orchestras on violin.  He also played in rock and folk bands in the Salisbury areas from the age of 15 onwards and later graduated from Trinity College of Music, London in violin, piano and composition. 

He has been involved in many classical/light music ventures including orchestras, a flute quartet, a duo with cello and even a 1930’s cabaret act.  He went on to play bass, guitar, violin and keyboards in various bands and from 1988-91 he was the bass player and composer/arranger with EPJ, a 13-piece modern jazz big band.  He played guitar, keyboards and vocals in a 4-piece pop band, then violin in a duo with guitar until mid 1996, followed by piano in his own original jazz quartet with guitar, bass and drums.

In 1998 in collaboration with The Booming Cherries, a contemporary dance troupe, he produced Gravy Bones, a jazz-oriented dance work.  The following year he wrote and recorded the score for an adaptation of King Arthur, a current production by the Spiral Arts dance-theatre company.  Other works include string quartets, pieces for flute and piano/guitar and solo piano.  All these works reflect an eclectic experience and a leaning towards music for dramatic and visual media.  He writes from his Kent-based home recording studio and has composed and produced many albums there including the playalongs for harmonica with Ben Hewlett and spoken-word material with Shaun de Warren and Marietta Pinto-Hayes.

He has produced books on Music Training Basics, Practising and Ear-Training as well as collections of pieces for piano, violin, guitar and flute.  From 1993 Paul taught at the City Literary Institute in London and wrote a three-year jazz harmony and ear-training course.

From July 2001 to June 2002 Paul played bass and shared lead vocals in a band based in Claridges Hotel in London during which time he built a large pad of vocal material.  From then he played in various duos on violin with Charles Alexander, Jamey Moore and Dominic Grant (guitars) and on piano and guitar with saxophonist Howard Turner.  Since the summer of 2002 he has studied violin and piano on the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Summer Schools in London for three years running.  As a music editor and copyist he has worked for many years with Dave Hewson on his projects for KPM/EMI with at least eight albums to Paul’s credit.  2002 also saw the recording of a harmonica sample album with Ben Hewlett for ZERO-G, a major sample company.
