Sir Malcolm Arnold was born in Northampton on 21st October His early musical influences came from his mother, a fine amateur pianist and, later, from writing and improvising jazz with his brother and friends. A lover of the music of trumpeter Louis Armstrong, after meeting him on a family holiday at the Royal Bath Hotel at Bournemouth where he played at a tea dance, Arnold took up the trumpet at the age of twelve and won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music at sixteen, studying trumpet with Ernest Hall and composition with Gordon Jacob.

It was during his second year of study, having already won second prize in the Cobbett Prize for composition, that he left the Royal College of Music on an invitation to join the London Philharmonic Orchestra as second trumpet.
