Philip R Buttall was born in Plymouth, United Kingdom, and was an ABRSM Silver Medallist at Grade 8 Piano, achieving the second highest practical marks in the country. He went on to study at Cambridge, Durham and Exeter Universities.

Winning the Raymond Ffenell Prize at the Royal College of Music, he graduated with Distinction in Piano under Cyril Smith, Recorder with Freda Dinn, and Composition with Bryan Kelly.

He retired from full-time teaching after more than twenty-five years in the secondary school sector, having successfully undertaken a school-teacher placement at the Royal Opera House. He has given piano recitals in the UK and abroad, and radio and television broadcasts, and was a finalist in the Yamaha Electone Electronic Organ Competition.

In addition to private teaching (classical & jazz piano) and composing, Philip writes a weekly classical music column and regular concert critiquies for The Herald, Plymouth's leading daily newspaper, provides programme notes for a number of organisations including the University of Plymouth, and is involved in occasional software testing and writing magazine articles.

He has worked as an examiner, and syllabus consultant for the Electronic Organ for Trinity College, London. He has also been a moderator for GCSE Music. In October 2002, Philip was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and in December 2006 he was awarded a Fellowship in Music for his research into the Piano Concertos of the Irish composer, John Field. In December 2007 Philip gained a further diploma, on this occasion in Jazz Piano.

In 2007 he was approached by American accordionist and teacher, Patricia Bartell, director of the Spokane Accordion Orchestra, to ask whether he would be interested in arranging some of his most popular instrumental works for Accordion Orchestra.

Never having played an accordion, Philip was happy to take advice from Patricia, and there are now five such pieces for this medium.
