His mother encouraged him in music. He was a talented pianist and viola player, but from an early stage composed music almost promiscuously. There he meets established composers such as Vaughan Williams, for whose work he has almost complete disregard with, it seems, the exception of the Tallis Fantasia and Holst, who fares little better in the estimation of the boy from Lowestoft.

Part of it was down to his commendable loyalty to his teacher Frank Bridge, who was largely disregarded he thought by that establishment. He was especially angry that composers such as Vaughan Williams and Holst favoured Adrian Boult so much as a conductor, whereas he thought Bridge was far better; they all suffered accordingly when he trained his sights on them.
He does this against the backdrop of a remarkably normal life — although one shot through with pain, as his father and mother die when he is in his early twenties, within a short space of each other. There is the occasional burst of self-pity, though not so much as conditions might sometimes have merited.
