Our professional development day this year will be led by Paul Jenkins.
Paul is a graduate of the VCA and holds Masters in Music and Grad Dip of Education from Monash University. Paul has performed with many ensembles including Melbourne Youth Orchestra, Melbourne Opera Orchestra, and the Grainger Wind Symphony. As well as clarinet, Paul performs frequently on instruments from the flute, saxophone, and oboe families.
Paul will be discussing strategies that can be adopted when woodwind teachers are required to teach woodwind instruments other than their primary instrument. He will also describe techniques for finding and preparing music for mixed group ensembles.
Venue to be advised.
