Mozart siblings at the piano

It has been an exciting year for talented AMEB music and Speech & Drama student, Hugo. Earlier this year, Hugo was cast as the young Wolfgang Mozart in a film entitled Mozart’s Sister, produced by Media Stockade and due for release mid-2024.

This multi-talented young man is still only nine years of age, and he already has over a dozen AMEB exam achievements under his belt for piano, various stringed instruments, music theory and Speech & Drama. This rounded experience made him a natural for the role of one of the world’s most famous child prodigies.

Diploma Preparation Workshop July 2022

During 2021, exams throughout NSW and the ACT were again disrupted at various times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Government-enforced lockdowns were experienced in many regions during the year which meant that teachers and their students had to change their usual approach to lessons and their exams. Teachers had varying levels of access to conduct online lessons via Skype and Zoom and in many cases, exams were unavoidably cancelled, or exam preparation had to be adapted to enable students to present for a Video Repertoire exam.
