What is your new role at Glenaeon?

I am the new Head of Music

What experience do you bring to Glenaeon?

I have been teaching music in schools for just under 30 years. I was Head of Learning & Curriculum (Music) at MLC School (Burwood) for nine years before moving to become Director of Music at Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School in Melbourne for the past six years. I am also a conductor, composer and arranger and my passion is for choirs.

What are your interests?

My main passion obviously is for music, but I am also a passionate cook and like to keep fit at the gym. I am also a qualified personal trainer - although I don’t really do that anymore except for myself. I love doing jigsaw puzzles and like movies and musicals. When we can - I really love to travel.

What are you most excited about for the year ahead?

I am excited to become a part of the Glenaeon community and to begin to provide wonderful, rich, real music experiences for every student at our school. I am excited to be teaching HSC Music again and to be in a school where music is such an important part of our lives. I can’t wait until we are able to sing again with unlimited numbers with our Year 7-12 students.
