I was born in Belfast in N Ireland in 1958. I currently live in Somerset in England. I am a musician by training and work for several educational institutions in the UK and abroad, teaching both English and music. I am currently a senior member of the examinations team of the International Baccalaureate Organisation with particular responsibility for the extended essay in music. My book on writing an extended essay or dissertation about music draws on my experience of marking hundreds of music essays for several educational institutions.
