Stephanie Burns

Stef has devoted much of her career studying human behaviour with a keen focus on all things to do with improving how people learn. Her work is ground-breaking in how we think about what is possible, and students who have used her work have gone on to be much better at whatever they were trying to be better at.

If you have ever attended one of her presentations, or read any of her books, then you know that what she is all about is you learning how to go about achieving whatever it is you are trying to achieve

She has been asked to apply her understanding of learning effectiveness to help musicians, new and seasoned, to overcome hurdles in both practice and their performances. She is not new to the music or music teacher scene, but she is new to our pipe band world. After delivering presentations to students at pipe band programs in Australia, NZ, Canada, NY (USA) and Germany she felt it was the right time to write, bringing this work to others who might never find the means to access it.

She was born in the U.S., now lives in Sydney, Australia and completed her Ph.D. at the University of South Australia. She entered the pipe band world in August 2013. Today she studies with Steven McWhirter.

You can find Stephanie and her work, much of which is freely available to students and professionals on her website.
