About this site

This site now incorporates his original website and this blog.
His life – as he saw it – is captured here. All the words are his own.

He produced 2 CDs of his favourite piano music. These pages give some details about his varied career which has included flying training in Tiger Moths during the war, inventing solar panels and breeding roller pigeons.

Dudley Steynor studied with Vernon Warner (1887-1973) – one of the finest pianists during the early years of this century (many would argue the finest Chopin player of his day). He also spent two years (1935/7) in Berlin with the Edwin Fisher school where he studied under Conrad Hanson.

A musical career was interrupted by the war where he served in the RAF qualifying as a flying instructor in which capacity he was awarded the AFC in 1944. After the war he taught music at Brondesbury-at-Stocks, near Tring, for sixteen years succeeding Vernon Warner there. He also maintained his interest in flying by instructing on gliders and flying the tug aircraft for them.
