Eric Coates was an English composer of light music and a viola player. Eric was born Eric Francis Harrison Coates in Hucknall in Nottinghamshire to William Harrison Coates, a surgeon, and his wife, Mary Jane Gwynne, hailing from Usk in Monmouthshire. After studying at home with a governess, Eric enrolled at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he received viola lessons from Lionel Tertis and studied composition with Frederick Corder. From 1910 he played in the Queens Hall Orchestra under Henry J. Wood, becoming principal violist in 1912, … which post I held for seven years, he said, speaking in a 1948 BBC radio interview, until, I regret to say, I was dismissed through sending deputies to take my place when I was conducting my works elsewhere. Henry Wood little knew what a great help he had been to me by dispensing with my services, for from that day I never touched my viola again and was able to devote all my time to my writing.
