-music to listen to and discuss.
– myself as a musician and teacher.
Who am I?
I am a music/ drama teacher who teaches internationally and was once an international student. I am also an aspiring lyric soprano, who dabbles in pop, jazz and rock singing for fun. I’ve lived in a bunch of different places and they have shaped who I am…
Tasmania (Australia), Papua New Guinea, South East Queensland (Australia), Singapore, New Zealand, Switzerland, Indonesia, New Zealand and now Laos.
At the moment I’m teaching music at an international school in Vientiane, Laos. The school follows the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum across all grades.
I still have a lot to learn about music teaching, but I like to think that I’m making the world a more musical place every day. I like to be innovative in my job as a music teacher and go from where my students are. At the same time that they introduce me to new music, I show them the links to where it has come from and give them the tools to take their own music further.
