Music studies end on a high note

THE Northern Rivers Conservatorium of Music in Lismore recently celebrated the graduation of students who completed full-time accredited music courses in 2008.

Conservatorium director Janis Balodis said that each graduate had followed a dream.

“And that's something that a lot of people don't do,” he said.

“They've taken giant steps to get to achieve what they have and can now take the next step to realise that dream. I hope their journey from here is a great adventure for them.”

One of the graduates, June Henry, said her journey began in 2006 at TAFE in Grafton.

“Along with my son Mathew, I was accepted and began my studies in Certificate IV, and moved to the Advanced Diploma through 2007 and part of 2008,” she said.

“I began studying here and completed the Diploma in Music last year. This year, I'd like to begin a double degree at Southern Cross University in Contemporary Music and Secondary Education, before hopefully moving to Brisbane as a music therapist.”

Mrs Henry teaches piano, and since graduating she is looking to increase her student numbers. She can be reached on 0407 406804.

The conservatorium provides a dynamic and supportive environment for quality education in music, dance and drama. For course details call 6621 2266.
