Music Education Lecture

This week I’ll be heading back to my alma mater to present a lecture on effective instrumental teaching and planning for learning for the Graduate School of Education.

The first session with explore approaches for learning in instrumental music with a demonstration lesson with undergraduate saxophone student, Joel Cassidy. It’s a golden opportunity to observe another teaching style and ask questions about how we teach and reflect on your own teaching practise.

The second session looks at curriculum design and assessment in instrumental music. It is a chance to learn about some powerful resources in music education and start thinking about the journey you want to take your students on.

Danny Spooner Tribute Concert

It was wonderful to be a part of a tribute concert to the Australian folk icon, Danny Spooner. A wonderful celebration of a life through music. The afternoon had stories, poetry, songs, guitar, blues, bagpipes and some classical saxophone.

Danny has such a way of understanding the story behind a song and sharing a love of music for all – the audience was encouraged to sing along with the choruses of the songs. A real affirmation of the power of music.

Geelong Summer Music Camp 2017

It was a ‘forte’ start to the year with another successful camp for the musicians in the Geelong region and abroad. The progress made by the students in such a short time was incredible with major developments in both technical and musical ability. Plus, a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded musicians. Guidance was provided by some talented tutors as well as the conductors: Ingrid Martin, Sean Rankin, Kevin Cameron, Martin DeMarte, Tania Spence and Ari Farrar. The concert finale was an arrangement of Thriller by Kym Dillon, a perfect choice for Friday the 13th! A great job by all involved.

Carols with the Geelong Symphony Orchestra

It was good fun to play with some local orchestral musicians at the Ocean Grove Christmas Carols. It was great to see how many people came out to get into the festive spirit and all the gate-takings were donated to charity. A very snazzy stage as well – what a great asset for the community.
