About John Paynter

Dr Janet Mills (1954-2007) began her career teaching in a comprehensive school. She was a teacher educator at Westminster College in Oxford and the University of Exeter. Her work as an HM Inspector of Schools included the implementation of the first national system for inspecting Local Authority Instrumental Music Services. Mills was a Research Fellow at the Royal College of Music in London and in 2004 won a National Teaching Fellowship. She wrote several books, and many articles in books, magazines, and research journals. John Paynter (1931-2010) was known for his advocacy of composition as a basis for the school music curriculum. He was appointed Professor in the Department of Music at the University of York and became Head of Department in 1983. He directed the project Music in the Secondary School Curriculum which ultimately established regional music education centres. This work played a leading part in the formation of Music components in the National Curriculum and in GCSEs.
