DIZZY’S
The annual Dizzy’s concert, held last Monday evening, was enjoyed by all. It was a wonderful opportunity for our students to perform at a real Melbourne venue.

Students from both Arlington and Blackhall Kalimna performed a diverse range of musical styles. Georgia Andrew was a wonderful MC and kept the night rolling. We were entertained by singers, guitarists, saxophonists, string players, pianists and many varied ensembles. It was a privilege to witness the incredible musicianship present in the school – so many wonderful musicians!

Thank you to Rod Waterman, Ainslie Wills, Catherine Wood, Michelle Berner, Ivan Rosa, Ben Carr, Adrian Perger and Atilla Kuti for their support and help on the night.

We wished our Year 12 music students all the very best for their exams and loved hearing them perform, as Preshil students, for the last time.

Below is a selection of photos from the evening.

TECHNOLOGY IN MUSIC
More technology suggestions to inspire and help …..
1. Anytune Pro HQ – while this app costs $15.99, it offers the opportunity to loop a section of a song that you are learning so that you can practise with it. It is not only a great rehearsal tool but can also make it easier to transcribe a section of music. Well worth a try. There is a free version available to try it out with.
2. Mozart Interactive – is a fun free app that allows you to arrange Mozart’s Ronda Ala Turca by choosing different instruments. This is a great app for young children.

PRACTICE TIPS
As Much As Possible – This week’s practice tip encourages you to practise as much as possible. There is never enough time, you are tired, you may have heaps of homework but try to practise as much as possible whenever you can. It will make a big difference! Go on, give it a try!
