Talent tuned up for shot
JUST two weeks to go until it is eisteddfod time in Gladstone.
It is a chance for upcoming musicians, dancers and vocalists to show off their talent.
Irene Davison, a piano and keyboard teacher for more than 25 years, is busy preparing her students for the event.
“I have 14 students entered in the keyboard section and eight in the piano section. They will be playing everything from classical to modern music,” Ms Davison said.
Children really enjoy the chance to perform on stage and the eisteddfod gives them the chance to do so in front of their family and friends.
“I encourage them to perform and reach another level – I want to see them get the joy out of music.
“Learning music is not only food for the brain it is love for the heart.” Ms Davison likes to hold a concert at her home before the eisteddfod as a practice for the real thing.
Parents are invited along and the children have a magical time doing what they love.
The Gladstone Eisteddfod will commence on August 25, wrapping up on October 10.
For more information about the eisteddfod you can pick up a copy of the program from David’s Musical Centre, Spar Express, Toolooa seven day pharmacy, Clinton Park Newsagency and Mitre 10.
