Instrumental convention meets

PEOPLE came from all over to receive expert tuition at the Australian Instrumental Convention over the weekend.

The Grand Finale Concert was held yesterday was a muso's heaven.

Experts in every musical field were bursting to show off the improved talents of their students.

The dedicated and lucky students who took part in the tutorials couldn't wait to show what their hard work had achieved.

The organiser of the Convention, Melissa Philp, was pleased with how the event was received and how the students came together at the conclusion.

“Judging by how the convention has been received and the amount of students that expressed interest, I may just have to organise something similar again next year,” Melissa said.

Another person who was pleased with the level of improvement shown by the students was Mark Eager.

Mark attended the Royal Academy of Music and left the institution receiving their highest award. He is also a world renowned conductor.

“The weekend has been just wonderful,” Mark said.

“At the beginning of the convention, not many people were playing confidently and now, they are not just hitting the notes, and they are playing with passion and enthusiasm which is what I love to see in a musician.”

Tutorials were held over the course of the Australian Instrumental Convention in technology, vocals, chamber music, large ensembles woodwind, brass and strings.
