Brian Haylett

(May, 2003) I live in Norfolk, on the east coast of England.

Musical Background. (4/24/06) My early musical life was notable for its negative side: my junior-school singing teacher insisted that I move my mouth but not utter a sound in class choirs. My senior-school teacher was renowned for banging a key on the head of anyone who did not "sing up," but he put the key away when he came to me. So I was strictly a listener (to the "wireless" - no record players then) and a watcher of countless cinema musicals.

Having turned down the chance to learn the piano, I turned to literature; and it was not until years after I left university with hood and mortar board (in truth, I never had the second at all) that I bought a cheap acoustic guitar. I never learned to tune this, and certainly never played a song on it. But it led eventually to my getting an organ, then another organ, and so on through countless trade-ins over 30 years or so. I am entirely self-taught, as people have been known to mutter.

While I played organ, I was told how superior the piano player was. As soon as I switched to keyboard, I was told that playing the organ was so very skillful. I reasoned that, by these arguments, a symphony orchestra would be led by a one-man-band performer, and players of flute and oboe would be in the gutter. In fact, the 9000Pro proved an excellent breakthrough (combined with retirement from teaching), and not only a good cure for left-leg pain.

Now I have Tyros2 and can hardly stop playing - always at home; I am no public performer. The problem with T2 playing is that the SA voices do not play back in other models, so I have used MidiPlayer to produce 2k duplicates of my T2 midis.

For anyone wondering about my website, it began as a resource for attachment-deprived members of Yahoo groups and has now gone with the wind.
