John Williams born 1932 studied music at the University of California
in Los Angeles. He joined the Air Force in 1951 for three years,
returning to his studies as a pianist at the Julliard School of Music,
New York. He was hired by Columbia Pictures in 1956 as a session
pianist in film orchestras. He became fascinated with scoring for film
and less interested in being a concert pianist so he moved to 20th
Century Fox and became involved in arranging and orchestration. As
'Johnny' Williams, he wrote scores for classic TV series. This
led onto work with the Director and Producer of 'Lost in Space'. Then
came Steven Spielberg and the rest is history...
