Based in Sydney, Jane is an Honorary Associate of the Medieval and Early Modern Centre at the University of Sydney. She is also an elected member of the Directorium of the International Musicological Society (IMS).
After her time with AYO, she completed a Bachelor of Music (Violin) at the University of Melbourne which was followed by a Masters of Music (Musicology). She then went on to do her MSLS (Library Science) at the Wayne State University and shortly after completed her PhD in Musicology at the University of Michigan. Jane lived in the USA for ten years, studying and teaching.
Upon returning to Australia, she began teaching at the University of Sydney, then at the Sydney Conservatorium specialising in Musicology. She is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Humanities and was a Senior Fulbright Scholar at Harvard. Her many publications are in areas of Medieval and Early Modern Iberian Liturgical Chant and Polyphony, Liturgical Geography, Manuscript studies and Codicology.
Some of her major highlights of her career are as a recorder player when she was part of the
early music revival in Melbourne in the late 1950s, playing recorder with many music ensembles both in the USA and Australia. Her current group, Honie Suckle, has been performing together in Sydney for 30 years.
Having officially retired from teaching, she is actively giving back to the profession as the Chair of an International Mentoring Scheme she founded at the International Musicological Society. Jane is currently on the board of several international journals, and regularly assesses grant applications in Australia, Canada, Spain and Portugal. She is continuing to publish and develop a collection of Spanish Liturgical Music Manuscripts for Rare Books at the University of Sydney.
