“The workshop with Colin was outstanding and was pitched exactly at the level the students and staff needed to improve and I was astounded how well the band responded to Colin and how much they improved in just one hour! That workshop inspired the students to play at their best at the Sydney Opera House (bucket list opportunity for students, staff and parents).”
