Richard Lambert was born in Bath, UK. His compositions have been influenced by twentieth century mainstream styles, mixed with traces of jazz and popular music. Richard gained invaluable experience from working with composers Malcolm Williamson and Elizabeth Poston over many years. He graduated from the University of Bristol, then gained an MA in Music Education from the University of London. He enjoyed a further year's study with Sebastian Forbes at the University of Surrey. He has since reinvented himself after running several music departments: his life is now a mixture of quiet composing, a busy travel schedule as a Senior Examiner for the London College of Music and working as a conductor, organist and pianist. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
