It’s an unbelievable time right now. Many of us are confined by four walls, trying not to go a bit mad. If you’re looking for something positive and fun to do, take your old brass instrument out from under the bed, grease the slides, oil the valves and send me a message to get started. We’ll have an online lesson! No need to be intimidated by the idea… we all need to work on something. Whatever level you’re at, I will provide easy-to-understand strategies to improve your playing, and expand your understanding of music. I will also provide pdf’s to go through. No fancy technology needed, you just need: A device (laptop/ ipad) with a web camera, an internal microphone, and a good internet connection.
The Sydney Symphony Orchestra today launched their exciting new project ’50 Fanfares’. Louisa has been selected as one of the 50 Australian composers, selected from a 280 person long-list, due to write a work for the SSO brass. Read more about the project:

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Ms Louisa Trewartha to the position of Musical Director of the Footscray-Yarraville City Band.
Louisa brings a wealth of performance experience to this role having performed regularly as a casual musician with Orchestra Victoria and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and also extensively as a freelance trumpeter for many years.
Louisa has worked brilliantly with the band since earlier this year as our interim MD, and we are thrilled that she has officially accepted the position.
Louisa will lead us at the Victorian State Band Championships in Ballarat this Saturday, and we are looking forward to working closely with her for years to come!
