As a creative music facilitator, I have worked for a range of partners in the UK and Australia since 2007, engaging with a diverse range of people in informal and formal learning environments and contexts. Each session I run is underpinned by opportunities for learning in a 'holistic sense' and a framework that supports process-based outcomes to emerge.
I also enjoy being involved in mentoring and peer-mentoring schemes; reflective practice and collaborative delivery models are embedded as vital components of the work. Within my practice as a creative music facilitator, I flexibly undertake a variety of roles as required by the work: facilitator, creative director, co-performer, composer, arranger, conductor, manager, collaborator, etc.
My work as a researcher underpins much of my approach as a facilitator, and my work as an arts manager and researcher enables me to see the wider picture of how partnerships and communities of practice are formed and developed at a strategic and grassroots level.
