I am an enthusiastic and experienced music educationalist with a clear understanding of the importance of music literacy for students of all ages. I have 38 years experience as a secondary music teacher and since retiring from full time teaching I have specialised in one-to-one and small group teaching.
I live in Morpeth and I enjoy teaching 'Cello, Musicianship, tutoring for HSC music, training and conducting string ensembles and orchestras, as well as training people to use music technology.
My strong passion for music and music education has been a driving force throughout my career.
In 2005 I completed a Master of Music Technology degree through University of Newcastle, achieving a high distinction grade for my final action research submission. I am also currently an online tutor for Master of Music Technology courses at the University of Newcastle and have expertise in the use of Sibelius Software.
My teaching studio is at the Maitland Conservatorium.
