Kristine took home a gorgeous dark gold Selmer Reference 54 alto to Brisbane where she is studying Performance at the University of Queensland. We wish her all the best!
Bernie's gorgeous smile says it all - she took home the 100th Stomvi Classica in March as well some some free goodies!
Carol Brass pocket trumpets not only play extremely well and are exquisitly made, but they are cute as a puppy.
A plethora of Pbone players punctuated the proceedings at Narrabri 2012!

It was a rollicking workshop at Knox Grammar school and Steve gave an amazingly insightful class.
Steve Mead was very impressed at the September 2012 workshop held at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with the quality of playing exhibited by the students.

We found time after the back-to-school rush to have a staff dinner together at the Royal Oak Hotel in Balmain. The food was great and it was nice to chat outside of work.
We were pleased to be able to assist the Schroer family and students at a school in Zimbabwe with some Yamaha student recorders.
Apparently some of the kids were better than the teachers at the recorder!
