James DickensonJames' (* 1940 in Manchester/Great Britain) early years were strongly influenced by his parents' active involvement in jazz and dance. His piano and organ studies led him to a close love of classical music. At 21, he took his first appointment as church organist. Later, James continued his studies at the Royal Manchester College of Music and at Manchester University.
In 1978 Dickenson became fully freelance, and has since been accompanying, teaching, arranging, broadcasting, using the piano as well as the organ. In 1988 James moved to Norway where he held a position in a church for some six years before returning to full-time teaching.
