Arthur, like so many others in his profession, started piano lessons at an early age - in his case, at eight years of age. By the age of nine, he was playing for the Sunday School and at eleven held a post at a church in Scropton, Derbyshire. A couple of years later he became a member of a group playing regularly for dancing.
This was followed by playing piano in a Royal Engineers' dance band during his National Service and, following this, Arthur played tenor saxophone and piano in a fourteen piece band until the 1950s.
In addition to playing piano and electronic organ, Arthur has been playing the Mighty WurliTzer at Burton Town Hall since it's installation in 1973, for concerts, dancing and Civic functions. He has also featured the instrument on BBC1 TV and BBC Radio 2, together with several local radio programmes.
He also holds a Diploma in Church Music and works freelance around many of the local churches.
Apart from playing in the UK, Arthur has also given recitals in Germany and Russia.
His chosen instrument at the present time is his Wersi Californian Travel Electronic organ and he plays this several times weekly for concerts and dancing in various part of the country, and has used it for weekend and five-day festivals this year (2008) at Torquay, Paignton, Weston-super-Mare and Scarborough.
