I’m just back from Australia and dealing with ‘jet-lag brain’ but still determined that this newsletter goes out today and just squeezes itself into what’s left of August! Australia: Sydney Conservatorium August has been dominated by my trip to Australia and that has been fun, eventful, fascinating and stressful. I spent the week of August […]

Verbier Academy and Festival I’ve just returned from a week’s work in Verbier, Switzerland where the Verbier Festival takes part each summer for three weeks. What is almost exclusively a ski resort in the winter becomes a venue for an international music festival in the summer, with an abundance of concerts, masterclasses and seminars. This is the […]

Musings about mental health issues I have been thinking a lot since I last wrote about how the topic of mental health is becoming more and more prominent in the press, in the media and in our general consciousness. Just last week there were two programmes on BBC Radio 4 about mental health, one of […]

It’s almost too late to wish you a Happy New Year but here it is anyway! One of my New Year resolutions is to write this newsletter a little more frequently; I am constantly having thoughts and insights about working with musicians but the challenge is to get them down on paper/computer screen and into something […]

The summer travelling has now completely settled down and I am much more based in Oxford with a few small trips around the UK. Most of them are to Yorkshire, with work at Leeds University, Leeds College of Music and Hudderfield University. Leeds College of Music I am starting my second year working with the 3rd […]

Summer is almost over, in the UK at least, and I am just landing back home after a very travel dominated summer. It has been extraordinarily stimulating and as ever, working with gifted students constantly stretches me and gives me more to offer and contribute. Verbier Academy and Festival I feel so privileged to have […]

Newsletters are funny things. I write them predominantly to people who I don’t know and have never met, but have either subscribed to watch theBeyond Stage Fright videos or for any other reason, have ended up on this newsletter list. Last time I wrote it, I asked people to let me know whether it was of […]
