Congratulations to Yu Chan Yang for receiving a 'Credit' in his First Grade AMEB Classical Guitar Exam.  Yu Chan's attention and focus towards his  preparation and practice time is commendable.  I look forward to your continued enthusiasm and application as we continue our guitar lessons this term.


Graham Jackson Music Concert Many thanks to all our students who performed at last years annual concert at "The Mount Nebo Community Hall" on November 13th.  Thanks also to all their respective family members who were an amazing and appreciative audience throughout the event.  It was wonderful to see some students perform for their very first time and to see many other students returning  to the stage with improved technical proficiency and confidence.  It was an incredibly hot day, but so was the music!

Music notesCongratulations to Jordan Mark, who successfully received a pass in his 3rd grade AMEB classical guitar exam.

We will all miss Jordan at this years concert, where he has always provided us with either a stunning instrumental and/or sung song of his choice.

All the best to you as you enjoy your upcoming overseas school trip in term 4 and I look forward to seeing you at your remaining lessons for this term.


Graham JacksonMy next recording project is a selection of original guitar based instrumentals.  Some are solo guitar pieces, others will be multi-layered tracks of guitar with other instruments. The compositions have been written as a vehicle for expressing scenary and movement within nature.

The 3 tracks I received award placings for in "The Australian Songwriters Association's" competion will be re-recorded for inclusion in the project. "Learning To Fly From The Nest", "Appaloosa" and "Porch Chair Blues".  Stay tuned.
