"Clive Swansbourne is an excellent teacher. His knowledge of piano repertoire is extensive. An excellent performer, it would be difficult to ascertain which style he prefers or plays best. He has a talent for helping a student work on a technically difficult passge of music and for devising fingerings that will work and that make sense to the performer. He has a good rapport with his students and is patient and kind. His love tor studying, playing and performing is contagious." Judith Nelson, BM. Houston, TX

"His standards are very high, but he is kind enough to think his students can meet them. It was my lucky day when I became his student." Emily Cook. Houston, TX
