About Jim Stebbings

I am a retired professional businessman with a life-long interest in the theatre, and in particular the musical theatre. I now consider myself a music historian with particular interest and expertise in the music and lives of Gilbert and Sullivan and the American songwriters of the 20th century and whose compositions make up what is commonly called The Great American Songbook. As a result of my work on these subjects I have developed a number of other talks that all relate to each other in some way.

My talks are illustrated with the use of projector, screen, music and speakers. Each presentation is designed for 50-60 mins.
