🎶 I had a unique experience recently when my friend Wayne, the Director of Music in Barker College, asked me to take on a HSC student who had just transferred from piano to voice. At first, I thought Wayne was kidding, I was yelling at him that singing is not the backup choice for instrumentalists.
Wayne convinced me to meet Ethan. He is a very humble and diligent boy. I was determined to help him, knowing that time was limited with only one term left before his assessment.
Our strategy was to work with what he had and select repertoire that would highlight his strengths, which were limited as he had never sung before. Ethan worked tirelessly on improving his support, phrasing, and confidence in such a short time.
It was the toughest HSC case I have ever worked with, but I am impressed by his dedication.
Here’s a clip from his school for his HSC assessment, and I am incredibly proud of how far he has come in one term. Well done, Ethan! 🎤
