Right now I’m in intense thesis writing mode, so haven’t been blogging much of late. There have been some great student successes in recent times, so I wanted to acknowledge all of their efforts.
Brijette Tubb has been going from strength to strength and has recently been awarded a flute teaching position at one of the top private schools in Brisbane, St Joseph’s College, better known to locals as ‘Gregory Terrace’ or ‘Terrace’. Brijette has also been invited to be a performer at the Michael Cox course in Adelaide this July. She will also be Principal Flute with the Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra throughout 2011.
Corinne Edgeworth has recently been awarded the position of 2nd Flute with Queensland Youth Orchestra 2, in addition to her position with the Young Conservatorium Symphony. Corinne has also recently progressed to the 2nd round of the MOST scholarship, for musically outstanding students in the Queensland state school system. Zoe Wright has also been awarded the Principal flute position, so it’s a thrill to see both of my students making up the current flute section of QYO 3.
Congratulations to Zoe Wright, Jennifer Chen, and Brijette Tubb, who were all awarded diplomas at the recent Australian Music Examinations Board graduation ceremony. Brijette was invited by the AMEB to perform a solo work at the ceremony, having been awarded a Distinction in her LMusA.
Clare Son is playing 1st Flute in Wind Symphony and Senior Flute Ensemble at All Hallows School. Well done Clare.
Been a terrific few weeks and I’m really delighted to see so many of my students reaping the rewards of their hard work and enthusiasm. Proud of them all.
I would like to welcome some of my new students in 2011:
Anna Brauns, Daria Orlovskaya, Anastasia Sechenova and Min Ji Kim
Until next time…
