A fascination with Music and the Brain.

When I first lived in Singapore I spent a lot of my money on buying music books and trying to educate myself about being a musician (now that I had finished my BMus!). The singing lessons (with Ms. Jeong Ae-Ree), language lessons (German and Italian) and choral sessions (at the Singapore Lyric Opera) were wonderful, but were a welcome distraction from teaching primary school music rather than an inspiration for being a teacher. The books and films I discovered about music and the brain, on the other hand, inspired me.
