By combining postgraduate studies in composition and experimental music with education qualifications and an 11 year residency at Sydney's MLC School, James Humberstone has developed an approach to combining new and challenging music for children with supporting resources, and continues to extend his experimental research and practice. He also combines knowledge about technology gained through nearly a decade at Sibelius Software with his compositional and education experience, and has become a leading authority in this field, publishing and regularly speaking at conferences internationally. In 2013 Humberstone completed his PhD and was appointed Lecturer in Music Education at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Today James is Senior Lecturer and continues his work in the fields of composition, music education and technology research, as well as experimental music.
James will speak to us about "The Place of Music in 21st Century Education" and will have teachers engaged in some hands on music technology. It promises to be a wonderful morning with one of the foremost proponents of Music Education in this country.
