Honours and awards: Fellowship in Music Performance honoris causa of IMEB

The International Music Examinations Board (IMEB) was founded in Australia in 1998 in response to many requests from teachers of music, speech, drama and theatre arts looking for an alternative examination system.

IMEB examinations are perceived to be more flexible and user-friendly than some other examination systems. All examiners are highly qualified and experienced teachers and therefore have a good understanding of the problems faced by both teachers and students.

Being an international board of examiners, IMEB delegates can be found around the globe, such as in Hong Kong, Dubai and Indonesia.

In 2013, I was nominated for the award of a Fellowship in Music Performance honoris causa by IMEB. The citation reads “in recognition of his outstanding contribution to Music and Education in the community.” The award was made in conjunction with the former Australian International Conservatorium of Music.
