Dick Blackford studied composition at Manchester University during the late 1950s. He was Head of Music at Nunthorpe Grammar School in York for over 15 years and then at York Sixth Form College for 10 years, before taking early retirement in 1995. This early retirement was prompted by a desire to spend more time on composition. His works include pieces for brass and woodwind.
