I was recently awarded Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. My submission focused on the work I do at Guildhall School with keyboard students on how thought and action intersect in music making. More information on the HEA (now Advance HE) here. I have taught academic studies at Guildhall since 2014 and my approach has evolved dramatically since then. It has been particularly enriched in recent years as a result my piano teaching the Royal College of Music, and this past year proved a good time to reflect on all this.
