Naughty cat disrupts live orchestra concert and steals the show 18/02/2020

Our students know all too well how our cats love music, eagerly awaiting firstly acknowledgement by the humans, then content to just sit and listen or fall asleep - no matter if it’s Einaudi or Rachmaninoff.

Naughty cat disrupts live orchestra concert and steals the show Forget clapping during movements or the shrill call of a mobile – now it’s cats who are disrupting classical concerts.

A HUGE THANK YOU to students of Leah Hanchard Peggy Shen Margaret Greig Beverley Tang who performed in 2 concerts we held on Sunday night. We raised almost $300 for Wayside Chapel Christmas Appeal. We have also made a contribution to a Christmas Foodbank appeal at Carlingford.

We are proud of you all!

Today is Make Music Day!
Let’s Go for it

More music needed in classrooms after 20-year decline, educator says 26/05/2019

Music in schools, taught by music specialists, as a properly funded compulsory subject is essential. I did it for 20 years and the outcomes were remarkable.
It’s way past time Music became important again, not just an optional extra.

More music needed in classrooms after 20-year decline, educator says A strong arts curriculum stretches brain power across subjects to improve overall learning, but in Australia it's been in decline for 20 years.


How much better off would we - and especially our kids - be if we spent as much time expressing ourselves naturally through the Arts as unnaturally glued to screens.

How important a place should the Arts have? The PM of NZ has it worked out!

This from New Zealand's Prime Minister today:

"I want to see a country where the creativity and joy that comes from the arts is available to the many, not reserved for a privileged few. I want to see a country where the arts flourish and breathe life into, well, everyday life. I want to see a country where the arts are available to us all and help us express ourselves as unique individuals, brought together in diverse communities.

I believe the arts and creativity are integral and inseparable parts of what it is to be human."

Man she is my kind of woman! Wish we had her over this side of the water!


What are your favourite thoughts about the benefits of Music?


And during my career I’d say most of those adults ‘blame’ their parents, whether because they couldn’t afford it or because they let them quit instead of encouraging them press on. And here’s a thought - what do you think happened to the other 10%?
