“As my daughter is most interested in studying Music at university in the near future, we spent quite some time in Melba Hall that day (MCM Open Day). I am writing to say that we were particularly impressed with Susan de Weger’s presentation regarding future careers in Music. IgniteLAB was an exciting and inspirational revelation to my daughter. She sought out Susan after the talk to discuss the topic further. The idea that she could study Music at MCM/VCA and learn the necessary skills to create employment opportunities after her period of study, was not only reassuring but tremendously motivational, I believe.”

Cultural and curriculum reform is needed for higher education to improve the potential student pipeline, engage current students, empower faculty, improve graduate outcomes and engage with industry. Having founded and developed IgniteLab, a world class program for the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, I understand how to design, fund and deliver high impact and innovative solutions.
