Prior to joining Sussex University, I worked as a music teacher for Brighton and Hove music service and was subsequently head of music in a two Sussex schools.  I was also lead practitioner for an extended school project in Tower Hamlets, East London.  I was awarded a PhD from Surrey University in 2008. My thesis investigated teaching styles in music composing lessons in secondary schools in England.  I have worked as a university based mentor and tutor for primary and secondary initial teacher education since 2004 and have been a part time associate tutor for the PGCE music course at the University of Sussex since September 2008.  I teach on an MSc music psychology course at Roehampton University, London and co-deliver the MA educational research methods at a public university in Athens, Greece. I also supervise MA and MSc dissertation students on a range of topics related to both music psychology, music education and international education.


I am a curriculum adviser for the new Key Stage 3 National Curriculum for Music and regularly publish reviews for the Teacher Training Resource Bank.  As a researcher, I have worked on projects on behalf of QCA, BECTA, TDA, DCSF and national and international arts organisations.  From 2006-2009, in collaboration with the Interactive Institute, Sweden, I co-led the development of the pedagogic framework and training materials for an international e-learning teacher development project funded by a European Union Comenius grant.  I am currently working on a project with Cambridge University developing an international music and creative arts curriculum.
