Leslie Howard (b1948)

Leslie Howard first learnt the piano from June McLean until he won a scholarship to Melbourne Grammar School, where he continued to study with Donald Britton. He began his studies at Monash University, Victoria, where he continued his piano instruction from Michael Brimer, later gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1969 and a Master of Arts degree in 1972 for which he wrote a thesis on Franz Liszt. After this, Howard lectured in musicology at Monash University. At the same time he studied at the University of Melbourne and after receiving his Master’s degree went to Italy to study at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena. Whilst in Italy, Howard received piano instruction from Guido Agosti, a pupil of Busoni, and studied composition with Franco Donatoni. He also studied conducting, organ and harpsichord, and, from 1972, received piano tuition in London from Noretta Conci. Howard won the Premio Curci at the Casella Competiton in Naples in 1976.
