I am a lecturer in music at the Brisbane Campus of ACU National (Australian Catholic University) where I teach courses in music history, theory, music education in the context of teacher education and I am the assistant conductor of the ACU National Choir. My interest in early childhood music in particular has led to my involvement with the Young Conservatorium at Griffith University in Brisbane where I am the co-ordinator of the early Childhood Music program, co-ordinator and teacher of "Colourstrings" and conductor of the Melodic Minors Children's Choir. As a result of Australian and international awards, I have studied in Hungary, Finland, the UK and Canada and I am currently undertaking research on the development of expertise and the notion of “talent” as applied to music performance.
