ADJUDICATORS

DR. ANNE MARION OSBORNE

DR. ANNE MARION OSBOURNE - ADJUDICATOR PAN IS BEAUTIFUL XII  

AnneMarionOsbourne

Dr. Anne Marion Osborne has been the recipient of several national and international awards for musical accomplishment since childhood. She received her secondary education at Bishop Anstey High School and undergraduate training at the Royal Academy of Music and the University of London. She later gained post-graduate diplomas and degrees from the University of Western Ontario, Indiana University-Bloomington and the Kodaly Institute, Kecskemet, Hungary.

Her history of direct involvement with Pan began in 1988 as a television commentator for the Pan is Beautiful V, Steelband Music Festival. From 1989, she served as adjudicator at national Steelband competitions such as Panorama, Junior Steelband Festivals and Pan is Beautiful competitions. In 2000, she was a member of the adjudication panel at the World Steelband Music Festival's European preliminaries in Paris and for the remaining rounds of competition in Port of Spain.

She considers that it is in the area of education that her principal contribution to the development of pan lies. From the inception of the music programme at the University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine in 1992, she has been lecturer and co-ordinator, teaching, developing and shaping courses of study leading to the Certificate in Music (Pan) and the BA-Musical Arts. The curriculum highlights the pan not only in Performance Studies but also in the so-called academic areas of Music Education, Ethnomusicology and Musicology. In collaboration with three UWI colleagues she has also been instrumental in the conceptualization, development and implementation of Graded Examinations in Solo Steelpan Performance. These examinations, the first of their kind anywhere in the world, will mark their 10th anniversary in September 2004 and have gone beyond our shores to St. Lucia, Grenada and Maryland-USA.

Dr. Osborne has also been involved at regional and national levels with the shaping of the CXC music examination in which the pan is a recognized musical instrument. In the pilot stage of the examination she served as syllabus panel member, facilitator and chief examiner. She has served on various national advisory committees in her field and is an executive member of the Association of Caribbean Music Educators (ACME) and the International Society for Music Education (ISME).

Dr. Osbourne has adjudicated in the last versions of Pan Is Beautiful.
