As senior partner in Marycliff Teaching, for the last 40 years he has concentrated on piano tuition lessons for adult beginners and more advanced students equally. The immense experience and insight which he has acquired in solving the complex challenges of piano playing is reflected in the fact that many an advanced and professional pianist travels long distances to consult with him, in addition to many happy adults achieving their dream of learning to play piano. One adult beginner traveled from Durham to Ipswich for lesson with Clifford, and an ex-pupil traveled all the way from the USA to Ipswich for a refresher lesson and to see how he had progressed with the DVD course "Learn the piano with Clifford Evans". His global reach now develops with the inclusion of Skype piano lessons. He now teaches via Skype from his specially build studio
