Some recent Milestones.

A new book

Inspired by the online article 'Portrait of an Artist'. Christine and her friend Monika Roleff, writer and former student of Christine, have embarked upon a project for singers. Aimed at Colleges, Music Schools, High Schools and Universities as a manual and inspired reference book, it will include quotes from singers, words of wisdom, and reminiscences about performance.

Seeing a niche for an inspirational book, to encourage and boost the confidence of singers of all ages and genres. This is a work in progress and they are at the present moment working on a proposal for publishing, collecting contributions from singers and musicians who have worked with singers from within Australia and abroad through a considerable network. The book will also include words from musicians who have worked with singers.
