He then went on to study music education at the University of London where he was a pupil of Professor Keith Swanwick.He now has over six hundred publications to his name mostly dealing with a vast array of subjects mostly concerning music education. His Music Teacher's Companion (co-written with Richard Crozier), won the UK's MIA Best New Book award and his series 'Improve Your Theory!' the Music Teacher Best Print Resource Award. In addition he has written many works ranging from countless short education pieces to seven concertos, a ballet and a children's opera.
