There have been a number of staff changes at 14 University Gardens ahead of the 2021-22 session.

We are delighted to welcome one new member of staff and two more familiar faces back at the start of the new academic year. 

The new addition is Cathy Phillips Brady, who has joined the subject area as Music Resource Development Officer. 

Cathy comes from Creative Crieff, where her previous job was as executive director of the youth radio station, Radio Earn. 

As a singer (mezzo soprano) she has recorded and performed around the world as well as having a varied freelance career in arts management, event organisation, fundraising and development.

She has worked in England, Wales and Scotland, for and with a range of organisations including The British Council, Wigmore Hall, The Royal Opera House, Welsh National Opera and Coventry City of Culture 2021. 

Among the many other things Cathy will be responsible for in her new role is the Music in the University programme and forging and strengthening relationships with musicians and music businesses and organisations outside the University.

More familiar to some will be lecturer, Iain Findlay-Walsh, and technician, Calum Scott. 

Iain, who has been teaching part-time for a number of years is now full-time and will be teaching across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses including Composition, Experimental Music Practice and Sound Shaping and Design. 

Calum will also be familiar to some as a (recently completed) PhD student and some time Resource Development Officer. Since April, he has been employed as a full-time technician, supporting both staff and students in Music and across the school and college.

We wish Cathy, Calum and Iain the best in their new roles.
