Jonathan was recently interviewed by CutCommon magazine about the UWA Guitar Studio's concert tour to Melbourne:
"One of my primary aims with the guitar program at UWA has been to provide students with as much real world performance experience as possible. We have 10 concerts scheduled in the second semester alone, seven of which are off campus. After doing a concert tour of WA’s southwest for two years in a row, performing interstate was the next logical step...It’s really valuable for young musicians to perform the same repertoire across multiple concerts, and have the experience of touring – flying or driving to the venue, travelling with an instrument, having to practice and rehearse while staying in hotels, etc. It’s taken a lot of work and organisation, but we’re giving that experience to the students, and I think that’s one of the things that makes the UWA guitar program so unique."Read the full article here.
