In the late 1940s he started to focus on music studies and away from engineering. He enrolled at the Westlake College of Music (in Hollywood, CA ) and studied with Dave Robertson and Dr. Alfred Sendrey. He studied privately with well known composer and arranger Russ Garcia and Lloyd Reese on the saxophone. [1] Holman was heavily influenced by the African-American jazz artists on what is known as the famous Central Avenue corridor in Los Angeles ; he heard a great deal of live music there while living nearby and attending Westlake College. He got his first professional start with Ike Carpenter 's dance band and then soon after with the Charlie Barnet Orchestra in 1950 as a tenor saxophonist; he would continue with the group for about 18 months. Early commercial work as an arranger came in 1951/1952 with charts done for band leader and producer Bob Keane on the album Dancing On The Ceiling.
