Deputy Director of the Conservatoire and Programme Coordinator for BA (Hons) Acting for Film and BA (Hons) Music
I currently work as Deputy Director in the University of Chichester Conservatoire. My role encompasses a broad range of responsibilities and embraces an overarching focus on the quality of the student experience within all Programmes in the Conservatoire. I also support a large number of Associate Lecturers who deliver teaching across approximately 28 degree programmes and oversee the delivery of one-to-one lessons. I coordinate various Music-related degree programmes as well as the Acting for Film provision.
Prior to my work with the University, I worked for the London Borough of Redbridge and the West Sussex Music Services as Staff Development Tutor, Leader of the Chichester Music Centre, Woodwind Tutor, Ensemble Coach and Bassoon Specialist.
I also freelance as a Performance Adjudicator and as a bassoonist, regularly performing in a variety of orchestral and chamber ensembles and have recorded for several films, one of which won the Caligari Prize in the Berlin Film Festival.
My PhD research is on ‘A Narrative Exploration of Experiences Post-Trauma’ and focuses primarily on areas associated with post-traumatic growth.
My research is supervised by:
- Dr Melissa Day – Director of Studies
- Prof Antonina Pereira
- Dr Ian Tyndall
