  • Personal Country Knowledge:
    • I have basic knowledge, but no expertise, of music education in various contexts, as I have had the privilege to supervise a number of students from different countries, and have often visited those same countries to attend conferences. The countries I feel most familiar with, apart from the UK, particularly include Cyprus, Brazil, Hong Kong and Ireland.
