Asking the question: is music indispensable in today’s educational programs?

For one unforgettable night, Richard Gill will show you why musical education is so important by taking you on an inspiring and entertaining journey through his decades of experience and research.

Don’t miss your opportunity to experience one of the greatest minds in musical education right here at USQ Artsworx (Toowoomba).

“Perhaps it’s just as well that Leonard Bernstein is dead.  Otherwise he’d probably have to relinquish his great reputation as a musical educator- or at least share it with Sydney’s Richard Gill.” – John Carmody, The Sun Herald
