As an Australian pianist, I have been working to complete studies of the post-graduate level which go hand-in-hand with creating performance opportunities and skills.
Having graduated from the Master’s Degree with the Harold Bauer Award as most outstanding pianist, I plan to finish my Doctoral Performance studies maintaining a large and diverse portfolio of performances and projects.
During the time of Covid-19, the world saw a large halt for most industries, including the arts.
This project will really solidify what may move forward in terms of performances and connecting Australia to the rest of the world in the arts scene.
The Doctor of Music thesis topic is based on research of technology-based learning and live performance. This is a field which was first established at the Manhattan School of Music in 1993 with the inception of the internet.
Australia is a remote country in terms of its geographical landscape. The future is thus one which connects even more our arts scene to the map and landscapes of the world.
This project and its completion is a stepping stone into a global community – connecting large arts hubs into an online network which is accessible for anyone, anywhere.
Donations will be used to support my studies, living expenses and remaining tuition fees. A budget has been created with a timeline of expenses. It is extremely accurate for the project is currently underway.
