New time slots available!!!!

Hi folks,

Great news! I’ve decided to open up a few more teaching slots on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the day. Check the timetable for more information about times and spread the word.

In other generally fabulous news, I’m very proud of my young singers Charlie, Chenaya and Elysha who have all performed so beautifully in their shows this week. Charlie appeared in Somerville House and Churchie’s show: The Sound of Music; and Chenaya and Elysha starred in Ormiston College’s show: Cats. I hear all performances were awesome!

Next weekend a number of performers are singing in the MTAQ Competition “A Sunday in May” and I wish them all the very best as they prepare for their performances. One such tyke is Will, who has been working very hard on his performance persona and characterisations. He’s doing great!

Josh is starring in a production with the QTC called Orbit – it looks like a tremendous production and we wish him chookas for a great show! For more information about this show, head to

In other fantastic news, Kiara won first place in yet another Country music comp, winning a grand total of $23000 in recording time with a fantastic studio. She is really doing some amazing things and we hold great hopes for her in future – either as a doctor of medicine or superstar singer.

Adil has just put out a new single and is hoping to make it big on the charts – he is such an amazing talent that I know he will succeed, even though the path is long and arduous in his chosen field. But he is a determined young artist and has the backing of some wonderful people. In the meantime, check out the laid back vibe of this wonderful cover of a John Mayer song: Slow dancing in a burning room on YouTube:

In other news, I wanted to let you know about a wonderful workshop the Musical Theatre department at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University are putting on in July. It’s called the Winter Audition Workshop and it runs for a week from July 1 – 5. I’m running the program and it looks like it will be a fantastic opportunity to develop vital audition skills for potential admission to musical theatre courses – I’m thinking of the Queensland Con Musical Theatre course, naturally! Please contact the Musical Theatre department for more information.
