About jessplainsong

I'm a musician, singer, researcher, teacher, in no particular order. I have what is commonly referred to as a portfolio career. I write a couple of blogs, finished my PhD in 2015, am a project manager for a research project in education at a local university and run a private business in singing teaching and consulting. Why blog? Well, as a way of documenting my life's journey. I could do this in a diary. You know, those handwritten ones. And I started lots of those, but I never kept them going. So this is my way of staying disciplined about writing about singing and teaching and thinking and performing. One day I'll put together a cabaret, when I've finished my PhD. I promise. And since I've finished my PhD, I have no excuse now.
