In the mid 80's to mid 90's Shirley was a professional singer songwriter touring nationally and throughout Europe. She wrote and recorded four albums of original material in her own brand of acoustic based music. Shirley then spent many years sharing her passion for learning to communicate through music, working with music technology delivering music/media centred workshops providing opportunities to enable anyone with an interest, or a range of skills to access music/media at all levels, on all scales and in a variety of roles.
