The blog begins….

Previously:

A childhood in New Zealand, desperate to start piano lessons so I could compose more easily, not enough books in the school library but plenty of sexism to confront and theology to deconstruct.

Growing up on a farm, growing up in a city, sick through enough of my childhood that I didn’t quite expect to grow up.

Composing came easily, but what to choose to say to the world, and who to decide to be?  Sometimes charting a perilous course between incompatible identities, irreconcilable expectations.

Choosing to change the culture.

The culture I’m changing in 2009 is the culture of piano teaching (see “P Plate Piano”, “Getting to” and other topics in weeks to come), but this very niche educational market is only one terrain I hope to help change (for the better).
