This is my passion.
I dedicate this personal statement to my dear Mum and Dad without whom this wee lassie from a farm near Stirling would never have managed any of this. They have been my rock and their constant love, support and encouragement have enabled me to follow my dreams. My sister Angela followed in my footsteps to study at the RSAMD and she is now a professional organist living in Western Australia. She teaches piano at All Saints College, Perth and is also the music director at the Wesley Church in Perth where she has introduced a ‘scholars recital’ programme for music students to perform at services and also at her lunch time recital series. From small beginnings she has extended the work there and the recitals have a large following from the downtown Perth district each time.
My husband Grant is a constant support and regularly welcomes all the students to our home. He provides a quiet and gentle listening ear to many and his wisdom is greatly appreciated.. I am very glad he is there to support me too! Molly our wee “Westie” is invaluable and my students adore her. She loves the music and sits under the piano during lessons!!
