The Australian Society of Musicology and Composition promotes and rewards the study and growth of all musically-related subjects throughout the world. Whilst the principal emphasis is on Musicology and Composition, all disciplines including performance are included and encouraged. It is governed by a Council of leading Australian composers, musicologists and music educationalists.
The Society is an examining body and offers the diplomas of Licenciate, Associate and Fellow. There is considerable flexibility regarding choice of repertoire. Candidates may enter from anywhere within Australia, or from overseas.
In 2011, the Society awarded an honorary Fellowship in Performance to me following my nomination by a member of Council. The citation for the award reads in part “your contribution to the music world, both in performance and teaching, is exemplary.”
