Clive studied at the Royal Academy of Music where he taught for several years on the Junior Exhibitioners' Course.
After some years as Director of Music at Luton Parish Church he joined North Hertfordshire College where, in addition to teaching, he was responsible for choirs, orchestras, jazz bands, chambers music, renaissance groups, piano and guitar classes, as well as organising concerts in local schools, including some for handicapped children.
He has examined for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music since 1976. During his many overseas tours for the Board (New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, America, Italy etc). he has given recitals and conducted teachers' seminars and workshops with children.
Last summer he retired as Director of Music at Bedford Modern School after more than 20 years service and is now busier than ever!
