Flo to everyone on here from a long time reader who had finally registered an account. I finished my MA in Music with OU last year 16 years after graduating with BA(Hons) in Contemporary Arts (Music) at MMU in the UK. Having planned to go the whole way through the academic tree I sadly detoured in to school teaching in order to earn a living as I got married for the first time straight after graduating. A divorce, second marriage and two kids later I picked up where I left off. Day job is a split between being a music exam board qualifications director, music publisher and piano teachers as well as fitting in freelance stuff with an emphasis English Music. The plan is a doctorate focusing on a couple of obscure English composers but I'm having to balance my time and subject against my research areas being very niche and self funding which is obviously rather limiting. Looking forward to interacting with you all.
