Congratulations!

He  wanted not only to be  a musician but a qualified teacher, embarked on the Bachelors of Music Education Programme which he just successfully  completed, with a Merit having gained a Grade A for his research report (dissertation) and a Grade B+ for teaching practice.

Reuel McCloyd White who is father to two children, Angélique and Ramiah White, as a child of Dorothy White and Kenneth Roach, would tolerate the washing of dishes simply because it was an opportunity to turn the pots and pans into musical instruments.   Noting his inclination, his parents sent him to piano lessons at the school ran by Professor George Irish and Mr. Bilton Bramble. He subsequently taught himself over 12 instruments to include the guitar and trumpet, but his principal instrument is the saxophone.

He has been a keyboardist for several bands such as CHAD and Energy Plus and guest saxophonist for Black Rhythm; the Caribbean Queen show and other festival activities.   He once organized a successful jazz show which was hosted at the Tropical Mansion Suites hotel. He had invited Maizie Williams from Boney Em and Cliff Nash to Jazz show in 2009. As a member of Energy Plus, he shared stage with the group Third World. Interestingly, one of the members, Michael Ibo Cooper,  became one of his tutors while at college.

His other contributions to the community include band leader for the Royal Montserat Defence Force, chief musician and arranger for the folk group, Emerald Community Singers; and church musician in Montserrat, the UK and Jamaica.

Being not a person who writes very fast he did not do well in his CSEC/GCES Exams, but with his wife Zelma at his side, with her encouragement, he successfully redid some subjects enabling him to successfully apply to the Leeds College, UK from which he matriculated with a diploma in popular music.

Upon his matriculation he was employed by the government as an itinerant music teacher for the four primary schools and the MSS.

It was then he so wanted, not only to be  a musician but a qualified teacher. He embarked on the Bachelors of Music Education Programme which he successfully  completed with a Merit having gained a Grade A for his research report (dissertation), and a Grade B+ at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, Kingston, Jamaica; carrying out his teaching practice at the Camperdown High School.

He now teaches solely at the Montserrat Secondary School.

He is thankful to the Howard Fergus Scholarship Fund, the government of Montserrat, his family, in-laws and friends who give him overwhelming support and love.

McCloyd operates under the business name MacZel, where he will now incorporate writing and transcribing music. He has been advertised by Professor George Irish for whom he has done some work.  He also has done notation work for another Montserratian who is living overseas.

GOD HAS GIVEN HIM BACK THE YEARS THE LOCUST HAS STOLEN AND HE HAS MADE USE OF IT
