I am a Program Manager at Music Australia. As a musician myself I trained at the Royal Academy of Music (London), and taught and delivered music workshops in a wide range of school and community settings early in my career. Since then I have held management roles with leading arts organisations, from youth arts organisations to professional orchestras and festivals. Prior to joining Music Australia in 2019 I spent four years at inspirational music in criminal justice charity the Irene Taylor Trust, where I worked on creative music programs in prisons and in the community with people on the fringes of the criminal justice system. I’m really looking forward to being part of Music: Count Us In, and supporting teachers and students nationwide to get involved in Australia’s largest celebration of singing and music education.
