Shaun Lee-Chen

Bringing the mojo back to UWA strings

Friday, 7 April 2017

With an envious collection of sneakers, a love of basketball and epic daily bike rides you don’t immediately think classical musician, but these are just some of the many quirks violinist Shaun Lee-Chen has.

He’s been the Musician in Residence at the UWA School of Music for almost two years and brings violin mastery that equals that of his mentor and teacher, violinist Paul Wright, as well as a level of hip that quickly made him the favourite among the string students.

Being a Musician in Residence is a dream job says Shaun.

Finding a sense of place

Friday, 24 February 2017

Tony Hughes-d'Aeth, Senior Lecturer in English and Cultural Studies, knows a thing or two about the Western Australian Wheatbelt. 

That’s not surprising given his childhood fascination with the region. He came to Western Australia in his teenage years and has been living here ever since. While holidaying with his cousins, he would visit the Wheatbelt and often wondered what the arid place was about.
