Howard Lorriman was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire.  He started to play the Cornet at the age of 11. After winning a West Riding scholarship at the Huddersfield School of Music he went on to study Trumpet with Maurice Murphy and composition with Arthur Butterworth. He then took a post graduate course in singing at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, where he won two prizes for song singing. 

With the legendary teacher George Thompson, who directed Grimethorpe Colliery Band over 20 years, Howard also studied Euphonium. Under George Thompson’s guidance he gained a Fellowship of Trinity College London.

Howard has had a long and successful career as a head of music, examiner and conductor.  During this time he played with many Championship Section Bands. In 1997 he became an arranger and composer for Obrasso, with whom he works exclusively.  This has led to an extensive catalogue of Orchestral-, Brass-, Choral- and Wind music as well as numerous arrangements. Many works have been and are performed as well as recorded by international Orchestras, Choirs, Ensembles and Soloists. In competitions all over the world, his works are highly enjoyed and respected as test pieces.    

Howard retired from full-time teaching in 2016 and this has enabled him to devote more time to composition and performing. He lives in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales with his wife Christine, an ageing Triumph Stag motor car and an increasing collection of model trains and soldiers.
