Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying some time off with family and friends.

The Carols at Concord Community Hostel was a fantastic success. All my students did a wonderful job and the residents were really enjoying themselves.

Natalie came 1st in the Rising Star category in the ‘I wanna be famous’ singing competition in Burwood. She made a BIG impression on the judges, the crowd and even some “special guests” in the audience 🙂

Clare also used the recording time she won in the Busking Competition a few weeks ago, I am really looking forward to hearing the CD!

I’ll be back teaching on the 9th of January in Meadowbank. Lessons in Pennant Hills will recommence in February. Until then take care,
Emma

Term 4 with only two weeks to go!!!!

Hello Again!

Everyone here is extremely busy with rehearsals and performances, we are all particularly looking forward to the Christmas Carols at Concord Hostel this Saturday, photos to come 🙂

Over the last few weeks:
– Kristy performed in the chorus for her school production of Alice in Wonderland, what a great opportunity, Kristy had a lot of fun and I’m sure was wonderful on stage, looking forward to the next one already 🙂

– Olivia’s production of Cinderella Rockerfella is all over, its been a big year for Olivia singing for the first time in Eisteddfods and starring in a musical but she has done a wonderful job.

– Clare continues to perform as much as possible, singing and placing in a local busking competition in which she won recording time a few weeks ago! As well as preparing for a performace this Sunday night in Parramatta. She is a hard worker and I am very proud of her.

– And lastly but definitely not least 🙂 Natalie is preparing for a performance this weekend. Natalie was picked out of 1000 people and mostly adults to perform in the “I wanna be famous Talent Competition” in Burwood.
You can see her amazing audition below where this little powerhouse belts out Whitney Houstons One moment in Time. She has a very big future ahead of her I think

Olivia’s musical was wonderful, she did a beautiful job as Cinderella and I am very excited about the next thing she will do.

Clare had a big weekend last weekend winning the Junior Singing Competition at the Eastwood Grannysmith Festival as well.

The next few months look to be quiet big as well with Carol events, school performances and exams. I just want to wish everyone good luck and say that I am so very proud of all of you 🙂

Term 4 2013

Welcome Back Everyone!
Thanks to everyone for your well wishes whilst I was on holidays. My time in Canada was lovely.

Term 4 has started and almost all my students are busy rehearsing for a performance or two.

Georgia sang Orange Coloured Sky in the Carlingford Eisteddfod last Sunday and came 3rd! Congratulations Georgia, This was Georgia’s second eisteddfod, What an achievement!

Georgia 3rd

Congratulations to Zach’s band Hunting Eden who performed in a Open age Band competition in the holidays and came 2nd. This is the 3rd Band Comp this band has done this year, And they have placed twice!

Clare sent in a video recording to The Voice Australia Kids and was asked to audition! She auditioned a few weeks ago and although she didn’t get through to the televised round she was picked out of thousands to audition in person! Congratulations Clare.

And finally, Goodluck to all my students performing over the next few weeks. I think there will be lots of posts this term! As we have two musicals, Eisteddfods, talent quests and Carols to look forward too! BUSY End of year that’s for sure.

Happy Singing,
Emma
