William Lovelock

William Lovelock (13 August 1899, London - 1986 Shipston on Stour, Warwickshire) was an English classical composer and pedagogue.

He was educated at Emanuel School and Trinity College of Music. After service as an artilleryman in World War I, he returned to Trinity College as a teacher and examiner. He received his Doctorate of Music from the University of London in 1932. Between 1939 and 1946 he lived in India, eventually joining the Indian Army and reaching the rank of major in 1942. Returning to London in 1946 he rejoined the faculty at Trinity College before becoming Dean of the Faculty of Music at the University of London in 1954.

Two years later, Lovelock was appointed the first Director of the Queensland Conservatorium of Music in Brisbane, Australia. In 1959 he left that position to become a free-lance teacher, composer, adjudicator, and the chief music critic for the "Courier-Mail" newspaper. He wrote numerous textbooks on music harmony and theory.

In 1981, after the death of his wife, he returned to England.

The Australian Music Centre has an extensive collection of Lovelock's work in recording and score. These can be found here http://www.amcoz.com.au/opac/name.aspx?id=225.
