9 June 1951, Los Angeles, California, USA
James Newton Howard attended the University of Southern California's music school, but dropped out to tour with 'Elton John' (qv), and eventually compose music for film and television.

-   'Rosanna Arquette' (qv) (13 September 1986 - 2 October 1987) (divorced)

-   'Sophie Howard' (25 April 1992 - present); 2 children


-   Never conducts his own music


-   Toured with 'Elton John' (qv). Worked with pop group 'Toto (XXIII)' (qv).

-   Frequently uses orchestrator 'Brad Dechter' (qv), 'Jeff Atmajian' (qv) and music editor 'Jim Weidman' (qv).

-   Has his own recording studio: JNH Studio

-   Ex-brother-in-law of 'Richmond Arquette' (qv), 'Patricia Arquette' (qv), 'Alexis Arquette' (qv) and 'David Arquette' (qv), ex-son-in-law of 'Lewis Arquette' (qv) and 'Brenda Denaut' (qv), ex-grandson-in-law of 'Cliff Arquette' (qv) and Julie Harrison.

-   A famously fast worker, Howard is often called upon to provide last-minute replacement scores for films, or to add to existing soundtracks.

-   Has said that his single most favorite composer is probably 'Ludwig van Beethoven'.

-   Was nominated for Film Composer of the Year in 2007 and 2008 by the International Film Music Critics Association.


-   Wrote original music for the theatrical trailer of _Batman Begins (2005)_ (qv).


-   I wish I had some great words of advice. The only advice I have ever been able to give anybody is to focus on writing music, and if you're writing a movie score particularly, don't worry about the picture. Just write great music and the rest will take care of itself.
