Curzon showed early talent on violin, cello, piano, organ, and as a conductor. By the time he was 20, he had performed in London theaters and movie houses. Later he was organist at Shepherd’s Bush Pavilion. He was active as a composer and theater organist at the New Victoria Cinema in London, and was music director for several London West End theatres. In 1938, he moved to the radio.

In addition to his works for band, Curzon composed songs, piano music, and orchestral works. He was head of Boosey & Hawkes’ Light Music Department and was president of the Light Music Society. Curzon also was interested in literature and art and spent much of his leisure time traveling.
