Wendy's Music School is pleased to present its Annual Showcase, during which students of all ages and skill levels will be performing musical standards they have rehearsed throughout the year.

Annually, the school prepares a recital that serves as a culmination of Melbourne concerts held each semester. This gala-style event is a way for promising students to show off their achievements, and in turn, receive well-deserved commendation. The concert will feature a collection of various classical styles, and guest will be served tea, coffee, and cordial while they enjoy the show.

Music is one of the few gifts in life that can never be restricted by age, transcends social barriers, and is powerful enough to shape our emotions. Its various degrees and applications result in a wide range of benefits. Enhanced memory, coordination, and organizational skills are just a few worth mentioning. Wendy's Music Schools present music education in an upbeat and engaging way that keeps students motivated, especially during the early stages, when connecting with a new instrument feels a bit overwhelming. Ultimately, teachers are helping students build confidence as they prepare for performances at local music shows.

Wendy Brentall-Wood is University of Melbourne graduate and founder of Wendy's Music Schools. In her bio, she speaks about having observed new students, during her early years of teaching, and watching them become so frustrated that they eventually gave up. This experience intensified her passion to see young musicians excel, and prompted her to open her own music school. It was there that she began sharing her methods with teachers and training them to implement those same deals. Prior to opening Wendy's Music School, she taught music at primary school and college levels and served as a church music director. She has also created a music instruction book, which she self-published in 2007, and continued developing her own custom teaching method, which is currently in use at her schools.

Wendy's Music Schools are unique in that programs are designed to mold the lessons to fit each student's skill level and learning pace. This way, beginners don't become discouraged in the earlier stages, when necessary fundamentals, like coordination and focus are still being developed. Students arrive to an environment specially tailored to encourage regular interaction with instructors and other students. This system, which Wendy has improved through her own experience, empowers students and gives them enough confidence to meet challenges that contribute to important growth. Her methods have also been instrumental in the school's contribution to the Melbourne live music scene.

Throughout the year, students participate in live music concerts during which they have the opportunity to show local audiences what they have learned. It gives them something to work toward and serves as a reward for their diligence and hard work. It also helps them find a greater sense of confidence that proves vital as they move forward in their lessons. As students are not expected to render spotless performances, local concerts offer a chance to pinpoint their weaker elements and gives them something new to focus on and further develop. Live music shows have also shown to be encouraging for parents, inspiring feeling of pride as they witness their children perform.
