I began my research on remote music tuition, communication and technology at Queen Mary University of London in 2010, in a collaboration between British Telecom Research and Development and Aldeburgh Music, which then evolved into my PhD.

In 2020, coronavirus and lockdown has led to the closure of schools, universities and conservatoires around the world. Online music teaching has became an essential lifeline for students, teachers and educational institutions. However not everyone has had a decade to think about it first.

Partly as a way to find some focus myself, I started writing articles on LinkedIn in response to questions from friends and colleagues who knew about my work. Read more here.

The response has been hugely positive, and I was asked if I could make my writing available outside of LinkedIn too, so here it is.
