He studied at London's Royal Academy of Music with Frederick Corder, and later taught at Trinity College in the same city. He frequently performed and broadcast piano duets with Edgar Moy, and was widely known for his compositions for amateur forces.
His seven choral songs, A Sailors Garland, are full of good music, challenging enough to make rehearsals interesting.[according to whom?] In addition, he wrote many pieces for solo piano and solo organ.
