In his own words

“Toward the end of my high-school education I became more and more interested in music analysis and theory. There is no better place in Australia to study Musicology so it was an easy choice.

“At the Conservatorium, my degree covered general music history but my main interests quickly became choral music and Gregorian chant. I was lucky enough to join the Chamber Choir on tour in Europe and sang at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and Westminster Abbey in London. I will never forget those experiences.

“The sheer amount of music and similarly inclined people you are surrounded by at the Conservatorium is enough of an education in itself, let alone your classes.”
