Term 3 2013

Hello Again,

Another term is quickly coming to an end and it was again full of performances, exams, prizes and exciting auditions.

A quick update on what has been happening!

– Olivia is well under way rehearsing for her schools production of Cinderella Rockafella, we all can’t wait to see her act and sing as Cinderella later this year.

– Elise was chosen from her whole school to sing with the big band a couple weeks ago and did very very well. Good on you Elise!

– Elizabeth, Amelia, Ashton and Louise all performed for the first time in a Singing Competition performing in Ryde, Sydney and Pennant Hills. They all did extremely well and Ashton even received a Highly Commended, which for a first go is an amazing result!


– Alex, Emma and Ashleigh have all performed for their HSC performances! Fingers crossed now for great results!

– Good luck to all my students performing in the Carlingford Eisteddfod in October especially Nazer, James, Laura and Elise who will be performing for the first time! Entries for the Carlingford Eisteddfod are now CLOSED!

If you are wishing to enquire about lessons I am currently on leave and will be returning Late September. Please send me an email via the contacts page and I will contact you as soon as I can.

See you all soon,

Term 3

Hi Everyone,

Well I’m back from The International Congress for Vocal Teachers (ICVT) in Brisbane and Week 2 of Term 3 is just about to start, I met some lovely singing teachers from around the world and I got to see some really fantastic singers, Acapella group Take 6 were definitely a highlight for me. I even got to watch Dr Daniel Zangger Borch from Switzerland give a workshop.
