Highlights for 2014

Hi Everyone,

It has been a wonderful year for all of my students with Musicals, Eisteddfods, Charity Performances and School Talent Quests we have kept busy, I can’t wait to see what my talented students achieve next.

Some particular Highlights I think were
– Grace being accepted into a Bachelor of Music degree at Wesley.
– Georgia winning the Northern Beaches Championship and being cast as Tracey in her school musical Hairspray.
– Clare travelling to China to perform and being cast as Ariel in The Little Mermaid
– Lynda getting a job in Disney World as a character performer
– Anika, Sofia, Louise, Xiomara, Ashton, Clare, Grace, Georgia all receiving first places in Eisteddfods.
– ALL THE MUSICALS! Cinderella, Throughly Modern Millie, The Little Mermaid and Joseph and the Technicolour Dream Coat

And of course the Christmas Carols are less than 2 weeks away! It is going to be a wonderful day so make sure you come along and enjoy the Performances, Sausage Sizzle and Water Rides! For more information please look here

Finally something I am very excited about my student Alexandra Lynne who has just completed her first year of a Bachelor of Music, is opening her own Singing teaching school!!!

Alex has been a student of mine for 5 years and has not only a beautiful voice but is very good with children and will be a wonderful singing teacher. If you are interested in having lesson with her please click here for information.  As I am running out of available places, I will begin to recommend to Alexandra. All of Alexandra’s students will have the same performance opportunities as my own students and I will be offering Alexandra my support particularly over the next 6 months, though I am sure she will not need it.

Now we still have a bit of work to do before the end of the year but it is going to be a fun December.
