Discography[edit]

Don't you think a discography style section would make this page a little more organized? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hoshizakistar (talkcontribs) 19:05, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

I WONDER WHY THAT SECTION IS IN CAPS LOCKS! No, seriously :) Halfang (talk) 17:24, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Any relation to the other Howards?[edit]

Is James Newton any relation to Ron and Bryce Dallas (who I know are father/daughter)? —Ryan McDaniel 02:37, 23 July 2006 (UTC) (edited with links 02:42, 23 July 2006 (UTC))

I think if James Newton Howard was related to Ron Howard, he would feature as the OST composer for a lot more of those films than he currently does. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.193.61.138 (talk) 19:09, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

James Newton Howard's father changed the name to Howard before James was born. Ron Howard's father changed the name to Howard before Ron was born (Rance Howard). So, nope, neither is related to anyone else named Howard, throughout their paternal lines, at least. All Hallow's Wraith (talk) 07:12, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

JNH a Royal Academy of Music alumni?[edit]

I have removed JNH from the category o"alumni of the Royal Academy of Music"(London), since I couldn't find anywhere that he did actually studied there. --Karljoos (talk) 13:52, 25 February 2009 (UTC)


Zimmer/Media Ventures[edit]

JNH came through Media ventures at one point, or had studios at Zimmer's offices for a time. He is always listed as one of the composers who came through Hans' camp early on, but that isn't mentioned here, only his more recent collaborations with Zimmer on Batman movies. This is an interesting and pertinent aspect of his early career, and I think it should be researched and added to the article.

He was never at Zimmer's studios.--71.107.56.189 (talk) 22:35, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
