Course Highlights

Italian for Travellers

I’ve devised a program of teaching Italian language to Australians that seems to work.

After 10 x 1+ a half hour sessions, the student should be able to speak simple Italian sentences to any Italian anywhere who will understand them. I emphasise pronunciation.

We use Italian organically to reveal the grammar which is then taught in a palatable way. And we’ll have fun doing it! Ciao per adesso…. (Bye for now).

Jazz Jam Workshop

Join in a series of Jazz and Blues improvisation workshops for all instruments and singers, guided by professional musician, David Rackham. These are practical workshops with supportive resource materials and lots (and lots) of playing.

Do you love jazz and blues? Musicians have always worked together to develop the tunes and the lead breaks. This can be daunting when you start out, but with supportive materials to help you prepare, a reasonable tempo and lots of time to have a go, you’ll get the opportunity to start developing your skills and confidence. We’ll start with simple classic blues and jazz numbers, and gradually work towards more complicated ones. You’ll have the opportunity to become familiar with what’s going on in the music and develop your skills to start producing great solos.

So, if you have ever wanted to have a go at improvising jazz and blues come along and have some fun and start being the musician you want to be. Ph: (03) 5253 1960
