Just another weblog

Intense thanks!

Thanks to all who presented last week for the Intensive- everyone was terrific – you have all clearly been working really hard, and again the sessions were really stimulating. And thanks to all who contributed so thoughtfully to discussion. And special thanks to Vanessa who was mostly at a rival conference(!)and yet brought the week to a fabulous conclusion on Friday night with the  wonderful King Hits. A great way to weather a ten week term….a fabulous nights’ letting down of hair!

Melinda Hinkson was really pleased that people were so receptive to her project, which I think could have very interesting benefits for us. She is also very sensitive to your responses, so if any of you have concerns about her involvement with the group (coming to intensives etc) it would be good to let me know – just email me.

If you are keen to be part of her project and havent told her yet,  I think you should email her

Alistair was also really delighted to have been involved and is very keen to maintain this kind of interaction. Isnt he terrific? I recommend his lectures which are on Tuesdays at 10am in music lecture theatre 3.

So, that was our final intensive for 2009 but I am thinking we should have a postgrad lunch sometime before year ends- and invite some of these extras along. And have a bit of discussion about how we might do things even better next year….

That’s all fffffolks!!! see you in Sydney on Thursday? R
