I am looking forward to crossing to the other side of the bay to present a pair of workshops to the South Gippsland Schools Music Programme. It’s a great time of year to get some fresh ideas and fire up the enthusiasm levels before school term starts. We will be exploring instrumental curriculum options, assessment strategies and effective instrumental teaching techniques.
