In my years of teaching, I have taken hundreds of students on breath-taking tours to perform around Australia. Organising and conducting this program was rewarding, with each a life-changing experience for those involved. Each student was able to develop or find their creative musical and performance gifts, while working closely as part of a unified inter-campus musical team with one vision and common goals.

“Wow, what a performance! We expected high quality music, but we didn’t expect a whole stage show. You have every right to be proud of both your staff and students. They were professional, fun and enthusiastic. The range of music kept even our youngest students entertained and the stage presence of your senior students ensured that everything just kept on moving. A big pat on the back to your staff as well, to take on a road show like this and run it in the manner they did suggests that a lot of hard work and preparation has gone on before.
Thank you for providing such a highlight for our students.”
