Biographical history

Barrie de Jersey (1936-2007) was an Australian pianist, composer and teacher who studied music at the Conservatorium High School in Hobart, the University of Tasmania and the Mozarteum University in Salzburg. On his return to Hobart, he was one of the founding staff members of the Music Department at the University of Tasmania, and continued his interest in music in retirement by teaching at the University of the Third Age. He was also a painter and potter, making and selling work as early as 1974. His ceramic works are signed with an incised 'B de J'.
