Welcome back for another wonderful year of music making!
Thank you for your patience while I finished off my Master of Music (Musicology) thesis last year and for your input to my research. This year I am starting a PhD to continue my work on meter in music education and we will be continuing to use visualizations and sonifications of beat class theory through cyclic and ski-hill graphs to learn more about rhythm, meter, pitch and harmony. I commend you on being the first students to use musical set theory or beat-class theory (mathematical music theory) in your music studio studies. As pioneers of new music theory I am very proud of you all and I'll be thinking of you at my graduation soon - I will be dedicating the occasion to you all. This year I will be producing a number of papers for international conferences drawing on research in my current collaborations in Sydney and overseas and I will be presenting a workshop for the Music Teachers' Association of New South Wales in June in Sydney about the work we've done in our classes in the studio some which I wrote about in my recent thesis. I hope you can make it along to the workshop it's called 'Mind Your Meter'. Looking forward to seeing you all at your lessons soon.
