ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the educational achievement and occupational success of musician and song composer Charles Wilfred Orr. Orr is very remarkable in the music industry despite his lack of formal education in music. His excellence in music composition is considered the greatest contribution to the music culture of Great Britain. His style of composition remarkably captures the heart of the international audience while some local musicians are disappointed with his music due to its numerous international influences instead of using their own ballad style. Despite this argument, they acknowledged his excellence in reflecting the real situation of the society in his songs.
