Lee Hicks
I was born in a mining town in outback Australiain 40C+ heat I survived within the shade of a mango tree. School introduced me to the recorder and then the violin. When I was nine the family moved to a town on the coast and there I commenced learning piano and composition and won my first piano competition. Not long after I won a music scolarship to a boarding school.There I held the arduous position of chorister and lead violinist. With boarding school behind me I went first to a music college and then on to study composition at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. During this time I became involved in a religion which took me to India several times and for many years my music became of no importance. In 1993 aged thirty I became seriously ill and visited my mother who was living in Wales uk. I have continued to live in Wales except for short lapses away. I became interested in electronic music for several years but am now receiving piano and theory lessons in classical music. I studied composition with Paul Jones for some time in Cardiff. I have always been drawn to composition and this is what I pursue the most.

Some of my music has been performed at Composers of Wales concerts, including

Neuron Jumper for violin and piano

Strawberry Blue for tenor and piano

Fall Softly Through for soprano and piano

other pieces performed recently

Jigabit for violin and cello

Codetta for 4 trumpets and bass drum

Pop But for tenor and piano

collaborations, commissions and conversations welcome.
