|Chelsey I'm 18 years old, and am currently doing my final year at Frankston High. I sing, play clarinet and alto saxophone. I began singing when I was about 3 years old and have always loved performing. I have won many school singing competitions during my earlier years, but what is most rewarding is entertaining others. I used to sing in cafe's restaurants, Federation Square, and a lot of Christmas Carol nights. I enjoy singing mostly pop/alternative music, and have done up to grade 3 ANZCA singing. I began clarinet in year 7, and also picked up saxophone soon after so that my learning could be more jazz-orientated. The FHS Senior Stage Band (in which I play the saxophone) has performed many times, including the Melbourne School Bands Festival and Generations in Jazz in Mt Gambier annually. We recently scored gold at the festival held at Federation Square this year. I play clarinet in the Senior Concert Band. I'm up to grade 7 AMEB standard for both sax and clarinet. I believe that I can make music fun for anyone, no matter their age. I love to pass on my knowledge to others, and any skill you learn in music will stay with you wherever you life may take you.|
