I have been teaching music for over 20 years and have been at ASHS since 2010. I am a passionate music educator who tries to ignite that passion in others. I believe that if we are to understand, perform and create music, we must treat it as a language to be fluent in. In addition to the classroom work at ASHS I have Musically Directed the annual musical and regularly coach instrumentalists and ensembles. As a musician I continue to perform with orchestras, choirs and ensembles around Auckland.
