Teacher Spotlight: Ziggy

Get to know some of our lovely teachers here at Cantabile!

Ziggy, Guitar

How long have you been playing the guitar and why did you pick it up?

I started playing guitar when I was 5 because my parents wanted me to learn an instrument. I kept playing because I found a lot of things I really liked about it.

What do you like the most about your instrument?

The aspect of the guitar that I like the most is wide range of different sounds it can make. It’s one of the few instruments that can change its timbres easily and frequently.

What do you like the most about teaching at Cantabile?

I like the organisation and diligence from the staff at Cantabile.

Quick advice for students:

Only practice on the days you eat


If you wish to register for an AMEB Examination this year, your last chance to register will be on the 25th July, 2018 for Metropolitan 5 (8th October to 19th November)

Please tell your teacher or speak to the Front Desk if you are ready to enrol for the AMEB Examination.

Aidan T. – DIY Drink Bottle (blue)

Alvin L. – Pie Face Game

Le Van B. – Time Zone Gift Card

Kayden N. – Razor Scooter


Mount Waverley Rotary Club

Village Market

The Mount Waverley Rotary Club runs a village market every 2nd Sunday of the month from 9am-2pm at Hamilton Place at the Mount Waverley Village Shopping Centre.

Students at our school have been invited to perform for at the market – if you are interested in playing music for the local community, please let your teacher or the front desk know. The next market after our school’s Winter Concert is on the 15th July 2018!

The outdoor market also features local stallholders, with lots of home-grown and hand-crafted goods – a perfect local location for a small day out with the family.

DATE: (2nd Sunday of Month): 15 JULY 2018





We recently had our annual Winter Concert on the 10th of June,

all the performances were amazing and we hope our students had a fun time performing their favourite pieces.

A huge thank you to all our volunteers, teachers and the hard work of the students and their families to make this concert a success. We look forward to more exciting performance opportunities in the future.

A special congratulations as well to our String Program students who made their inaugural debut at the concert. We are so proud of all of you!
