Ternent was born in Newcastle upon Tyne on 10 October 1899, and began his professional music career in 1927, joining Jack Hylton's showband, becoming its principal arranger and mutli-instrumentalist. He remained with the band until the outbreak of World War II, and proceeded to lead orchestras for the BBC throughout the early 1940s. He formed his own band in 1944, and began conducting pit bands for various West End theatre shows. In the 1950s, he provided the backing orchestra to Frank Sinatra when he toured the UK,[3] who described him as "the little giant". From 1962 to 1967 he was the musical director for the London Palladium.[1]
