ISBN: 9781 4775 74065

The book is autobiographical in nature, concentrating on Terry’s professional life as a player of the French horn. You will also find some information about the various places in which Terry and his wife have set up home. There is very little about school life, although Terry gives credit to his sixth form teachers J.B. Davies (French), and Garfield Griffiths (English Literature).

Terry Johns attended ABGS from 1955 to 1962. He lived at 11 Baptist Place, Hirwaun and was the son of a miner. He made an early start in music and played in a local brass band. At school he was also known by his initials K.T., and later, from his youth orchestra days as ‘Drac’. He won a Glamorgan Senior Instrumental Scholarship to attend the Royal Academy of Music in London. He quickly became a French Horn player of international repute.

Terry is present in the 1957 panoramic photograph in which all boys are numbered. He is No. 106. For further information about Terry’s career, see his entry in the Former Pupils section of this website.
