Students from Moffatdale, Cloyna and Windera State schools entertained some special visitors last week who dropped in to share some musical skills.
John Babbage and Matt Wild from the Brisbane-based quintet Topology have visited the cluster previously with their “Top Up” program, but this time there was an extra bonus for the budding young musicians … they will have the opportunity to play alongside Topology at their upcoming Wondai concert on November 13.
While Matt taught some basic ukelele skills, John hosted a composition workshop where the students were encouraged to create a “South Burnett song”.
They contributed ideas about the history, people and places which will be put together into one song.
The completed song – using ukeleles and maraccas – will be performed at the Wondai concert.
John also entertained the students with some top-notch saxophone playing.
