Sydney Conservatorium of Music
I currently work in Music Education at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (SCM) at The University of Sydney where my role is in teacher education training musicians to be music teachers. Within this role, I co-ordinate the professional experience (practicum) placement program for SCM students into multiple Arts industry settings, regional conservatoria and local, country and international schools. I am particularly interested in areas of identity development for beginning music teachers as they transition from novice to expert and emerge as musician teachers. My background in gifted education provides research expertise in musicians’ talent development and musical, academic and socio/emotional nurturing throughout the school years. My last 10 years has seen funded research grants into the impact of the ePortfolio for fostering enhanced career preparation within frameworks developing a sense of possible future self. I am committed to musician’s professional learning and how individual cognitive, social, emotional and behavioural needs of all learners can be met in a diverse range of educational settings.
