The NECOM community is very excited about the imminent arrival of Dr Brieley Cutting who will commence piano lessons at the Conservatorium for the first time from the week of 15 October. There is still time to reserve your place for lessons with one of Australia’s most exciting young concert pianists, and applications are welcome from both students and adults. The inclusion of the piano program for the first time this year represents a major new development in NECOM’s 15-year history, and this new discipline will have a flow-on effect to our other programs. Dr Cutting is an expert in chamber music and collaborative performance, and we can’t wait to see what her experience and passion can bring to NECOM. Don’t miss out on a place in what will surely end up being one of our premier programs – a $100 deposit secures your spot and is then subtracted from your Term Four fees.
