In 2006 he retired as Senior Lecturer in Education at the University of Leicester where, for many years as a teacher trainer and science education researcher, he pioneered the application of computers in education. He has been a regular contributor to GIREP conferences and seminars since the Ljubljana conference in 1996.

They continued through university at Nottingham and later with Professor Nicholas Danby at the Guildhall School of Music, London. His first parish post was as Organist and Choirmaster at Great Waltham Parish Church, Essex.
