Life and career

Timothy James Rice-Oxley was born in Oxford, England to Charles Patrick and Margaret Rice-Oxley. He had piano lessons when he was a teenager but admitted to hating them and never practising pieces because they were all classical music which he found boring. After his parents stopped his lessons, Rice-Oxley developed a liking for piano and so taught himself how to play, mainly because of The Beatles.[1]
