"The experiences that I enjoyed at Griffith University have enabled me to pursue a diverse and constantly evolving journey in music education that has continued to this day. Being immersed in a rich music culture equipped me with skills that have been essential in delivering engaging experiences for my students. Music education has enabled me to remain current by being involved with the musicians of the future on a daily basis. These interactions compliment my own professional practice and in simple terms my day job is also my passion with each workday being a whole lot of fun."
