Surf Coast Trail Marathon

I always enjoy playing some tunes to help the runners push through the aches and pains of a 42km slog. Starting at Torquay the runners will follow the Surf Coast Walk all the way to Fairhaven and enjoy some breathtaking scenery along the way. I’ll be playing on Saturday 29th June from 11:45 at Urquhart bluff with a picturesque view of the Victorian Beach!

VCE Music Teacher’s Conference 2019

It is always a pleasure to present at the aMuse VCE conference to share some things that have worked for me and learn about developments in this amazing subject.

I will be holding a teaching strategy workshop on unpacking the performance criteria for instrumental lessons, sharing some of the activities that have had success with my students. Beyond simply learning how to play their program, students will learn how to draw out the key elements of each work to showcase their understanding of the criteria.

Registrations are available on the aMuse website.
