Robin Benton studied music at London University and ran a children’s handbell and handchime group for twenty years. His wind band won a McDonald’s ‘Child of Achievement’ award for their performance of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture – with the handbells playing the part of the bells of Moscow!
Robin’s handbell pieces have won national composing competitions and his music has been played at regional and national handbell events here in the UK. He has enjoyed conducting his prize-winning music at the International Handbell Symposiums in both Australia and England.
Robin’s handbell music is published in the UK and in the USA. Full details are on his website: www.robinbenton.com
