Michael Head Life

Michael Head (28 January 1900 – August 24, 1976) was a British composer, pianist, organist, and singer whose legacy is still popular today.

He was praised for his relationship with the Royal Academy of Music.

His compositional work mainly consists of songs, as well as choral and a handful of larger-scale works, such as a piano concerto.


Michael Dewar Head was born in Eastbourne, England, on January 28th, 1900. His father, a barrister and journalist, and his mother, a gifted amateur and pianist, was a natural born performer and pianist. His mother's influence was evidently preponderant, and he began his musical studies at age ten, taking piano lessons with Jean Adair and singing with Fritz Marston at the Adair-Marston School of Music. He was educated at Monkton Combe School in Somerset.

He began to study at the Royal Academy of Music, but was soon called up for service in the War. He wrote the song cycle Over the rim of the moon while working in an ammunition factory (Head et al., 1920). This was to be his first published work.

Head resumed his studies at the Academy after the war. He studied composition with Frederick Corder, piano with T B Knott, and organ with Reginald Steggall. He received a scholarship for composition. He has also received numerous awards for composition, sight singing, and harmony. Head was appointed an Associate of the Academy in 1924. He took up a job at Bedales School, Petersfield, two years ago, where he taught for three years.

In 1929, Head gave his first public recital as a self-accompanied singer at Wigmore Hall. His fame soared after his debut on stage. He gave many more recitals in the British Isles and other parts of the world. In addition, he appeared on several radio shows, both in the United Kingdom and Canada. After being invited by Sir John McEwen, he accepted the post of Pianoforte Professor at the Royal Academy in 1927. This was to remain on hold until his retirement in 1975.

The head was nominated an examiner for the Royal Schools of Music's Associated Board, and as such, he has visited many nations, including Barbados, South Africa, and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). He returned to London and continued teaching during the blitz as a result of World War II. Hundreds of concerts were given in factories and small towns during this period.

When looking for the Associated Board in Rhodesia and South Africa, Head died in Cape Town on August 24, 1976, from a sudden and unexpected illness.


Have you got whooping cough? Are you putting children at risk? All your vital questions answered after the terrifying outbreak kills five babies

www.dailymail.co.uk, May 12, 2024
It made for frightening reading. Amid an ongoing outbreak of whooping cough last week - the worst for almost a decade - it was announced that the infection had claimed the lives of five infants. According to figures released by the UK Health Protection Agency (UKHSA) there have been 2,800 laboratory-confirmed cases this year, compared with 858 cases in the whole of 2023. In addition, GPs have reported around 8,000 suspected cases of whooping cough - in May last year that figure stood at just 207. And scientists say the vast majority of cases go unrecorded - due to the fact that people don't always visit a doctor for a cough - meaning these numbers are likely to be just the tip of the iceberg.

Nearly 3,000 cases of pertussis, or the 100-day cough, have already been recorded in 2024 - treble levels seen across the entirety of 2023. Nottingham, parts of Wales, Leeds and Sheffield appear to be the hotspots. Only three of 330-plus districts across England and Wales have yet to report any suspected cases this year, MailOnline analysis reveals. Whooping cough - an illness as contagious as measles - killed five babies in the first quarter of 2024. All were under the age of three months. Another victim, not yet included in the official toll, is Evie-Grace Lewis, who died last week at just 15 days old after catching the infection. Heartbroken parents Reece and Caitlin say she 'deteriorated so quickly'.
