The Symphony for Life kids really are getting the full range of experiences that make up a complete musical journey, so in 2022 we put the call out for students to undertake their first AMEB exams, a time-honoured tradition of every musician in Australia. Two students, Sarah and her brother Samuel, completed their exams early in the year, three more have just done theirs, and another five are working hard preparing for term 3 exams.
Diamonds are created under pressure, and the same can be said for preparing solo pieces of music. To work to a deadline, and to turn up on the day having to turn it on really brings out that last level of refinement. This is of course only true if proper preparation has happened, which, with credit to our students and our teachers, they are nailing that!
