A letter of appreciation from Jenny Gillies

I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for the guidance the Music Department gave to my son Joel through Music Styles a number of years back.  The Analysis side of Music Styles set him up well in the similar aspects of Solo and Group Music Performance in 2009 and 2010.

Joel completed Year 12 in 2010 and completed a Bachelor of Applied Music in Composition at Box Hill Institute in 2013, achieving an award for academic excellence.  He has started a Masters of Teaching at Monash this year with a view to teaching part time and composing part time.

Whilst he loves performing on a variety of instruments and seems to be an excellent teacher-in-the-making, Joel really loves composing and is a great all-round musician.

Thanks again for your most valuable input!
