Who is Mr B?

I’m a musician/audio engineer with 20+ years of experience. I play guitar, bass, bagpipes, drums, keys/piano. Over the years i’ve played in the following bands – Truth, Supercharger, Angel Down and briefly Praetorian. The love of playing instruments drew me to audio engineering where i had turned my focus. I’m a qualified engineer and taught audio engineering at JMC Melbourne Campus after leaving music retail chain Allans Music and Billy Hydes. I was part of a film/documentary called Jesus Can’t Skate where i part engineered and played on the title track Jesus Cant Skate and Roller Boi. This was premiered at the Australian Film Festival 2006! Music is and always has been a big part of my life, but there’s been a shift.  Lets see where the coming years takes me!

Well here I am, now teaching Primary. Who’d have thought? What a transition from previous careers to find myself back teaching but now to an enthusiastic bunch of Primary students. Greatest decision of my life!

  7. Hi Mr B, hope you are enjoying your 3/4 class this year. Some of your students’ names are familiar from my time in 1/2 with Ms Hodson. My grade 4 class is great, we are enjoying coding on the iPads and learning about living things this term. Enjoy the rest of the year.
