JumboNote Guitar & Vocal student Benjamin Wong has recently been awarded a Music Scholarship from the prestigious St. Andrews Cathedral School located in Sydney City. Benjamin was one of over 2000 students who applied for the Music Scholarship, and prevailed after months of hard work in preparing for his auditions and examinations with his JumboNote teachers Manuel Andrade and Ani Blenkinsopp.
Benjamin has been having lessons at JumboNote Music School for the past 3 years, and has been amongst JumboNote’s most dedicated musicians taking part in numerous recitals, concerts, and being an integral member and lead guitarist of JumboNote band ‘Studio Beez’.
‘Benjamin is one of those rare special talents you only ever see a few times in your life….This scholarship will push him to achieve his full potential as a musician’ says his greatest mentor and teacher Manuel Andrade. On accepting his scholarship, the year 8 high school student will be kept busy with the 5 music ensembles he is part of at St. Andrews Cathedral which comprises of Jazz Band, Rock Band, Big Band, Mixed Choir (Boys & Girls) and Boys Choir. Benjamin will also star in our JumboNote Showcase and Battle of the Bands plus performances at the Oatley Spring Fair and Ronald McDonald Day with JumboNote band ‘Studio Beez’.
JumboNote would like to congratulate Benjamin Wong on this massive achievement, and thank his parents for their tireless efforts in encouraging Ben to pursue his gift in music! We’d also like to thank Manuel Andrade and Ani Blenkinsop for their dedication in teaching and preparing Benjamin.
