Thank you Mr Stead. Your one little admonishment to me way back in 2010 has kept me grounded in the belief that my students must be at the forefront of the musical experiences we design in our lessons.

Being a student of Prof Stead, I remember vividly our lessons in NIE, Singapore. He was a patient and kind professor who demonstrates passion in both music and teaching. I wish his legacy can continue to benefit the researches in Cancer Research UK and the students in Abingdon Music Centre.
