I’m from Australia. I grew up in a remote farming community where television did not reach until the late part of the 20th century. We relied on singing and playing in large family groups. Having a Celtic heritate on all sides there is a slant in my upbringing for the melodies of Ireland and Scotland. I played the piano by ear from the age of 4. I was thus not only popular when it came to entertainment - I had no choice. I am now studying composition in Sydney as a mature age student.
