Professional & Academic Experience

Recently completing an MSc in the Psychology of Education at University College London, I became concerned with the inconsistency of technology integration in Music education. Believing that professional development is critical for the building of skills in non-specialist educators, I am developing a mentoring programme that supports technology integration in the music classroom.
