What do you teach at the Con?

I teach in the ChiME and In School programs.

What is it that you love about teaching music – particularly at Wollongong Conservatorium?

I love seeing my students discover their abilities.

Please share a particular career highlight and why it’s special to you.

The first time I heard my band get played on Triple J. We had put a lot of effort into recording and sending out our CDs and it was very exciting to know our music was being played around the country.

What’s one piece of music that you’d recommend people listen to?

I love the arrangement and the vocals of this piece below. The meaning of the lyrics is beautiful.
