“Your incursion is fabulous!  Our Kindy children were engaged from beginning to end. They listened to what you had to say and had a go at every instrument on offer. They now have a good understanding of how to watch and respond to a conductor, we, the teachers use the crescendo and diminuendo all the time (in greetings, farewells, songs, etc).”  Debra Karro, Carmel School.

“There were so many excellent aspects about the incursion …  the accessibility and number of instruments made the interactive experience for the students that much more meaningful as they could share and play together with other students but also experience music making independently … the topics covered in the incursion were relevant to the students’ prior learning and experiences.  Furthermore, having a guest in for Music brings a different perspective to Music for the students which as a Music Teacher, is valuable for me to see how the students interact. Alec, you are a pleasure to work with – thank you!”  GillianTom, Music Specialist, Mandurah Catholic College.
