Band Camp at Lake Keepit
Declan and Lachlan Eshman attended the band camp at Lake Keepit between 6 and 11 May. Both students are experienced band musicians – Declan on saxophone and Lachlan on trombone – and both are currently receiving tuition in their instruments via Skype. Declan is part of the Mark Walton Outreach Programme, and Lachlan has Skype lessons with David Henry, a professional trombone player from Sydney.
The band camp was organised by the Department of Education’s Arts Unit. During the camp, various tutors worked with the students, and they all participated in band and ensemble playing. The camp ended with a concert at Lake Keepit for parents and families. Both Declan and Lachlan enjoyed the camp and commented very positively on the instruction they received. A huge thank you goes to Mr and Mrs Eshman for all their organisational input and transport. Aimee Rossler
