Wow! What a crazy past two months it has been here at Kalinda Jade Studios. As many of you may know the HSC once again got well underway for year 12 students some weeks ago and even earlier for our year 12 music students who attend the studio. For those music students, we first had the practical music examinations where each student was required to perform at least one song and present another three major bodies of work which could either be another song, composition or musicology. Thankfully though, due to the extremely passionate and dedicated teachers here at the studio, this was made a far less stressful process than it needed to be. Speaking from experience, this year I was lucky enough to have performed my songs to the judges with the professional accompaniment of Ata and Kalinda who were able to help me and the other students take our performances to a new level of professionalism. One student in particular who achieved great success with her HSC performances was singer Emma Mylott who has been nominated for Encore, which is annual concert at the Opera house where the board of studies showcase the best of the HSC performances.
Not only did HSC music students from Kalinda Jade Studios excel in their practical examination, with the help of Kalinda, the students were also able to gain the skills and abilities to conquer their aural exam. In this exam the students are required to listen to an excerpt of music a set amount of times and the answer the question given, they must do this for four separate questions. Even though the results have not come out yet, the teachers here at the studio are sure many of the students will have assassinated great results.
In saying all this, I would like to say on behalf of the HSC music students of 2012 at Kalinda Jade Studios, that we can not thank you enough, It was because your care, hard work, patience and motivation that we were all able to have the confidence and abilities to complete our exams to the best of our abilities.
To the rest of the HSC students in NSW we want to wish the best of luck to you in your final exams and all the best for whatever the future may hold for you.
