Accompanist - Adrian Allen
Adrian was born in Tasmania and graduated in Music Education from The University of Tasmania. The love of music, especially the piano, was evident at age 3 when he was playing some Mozart at the piano. Lessons started age 4 and continued until the end of his university years.
Adrian has taught music in both government and private schools, from Kindergarten to Year 12, holding positions of responsibility in all schools he has taught at. He has performed throughout Australia as part of Rock, Cabaret and Jazz bands, conducted community and school orchestras and concert bands and performed for various events as a soloist. He is also an accomplished pipe organist and has enjoyed using these talents in various churches. Composing music is also another love of his when time permits.
Adrian is currently teaching music at Westernport Secondary College and is the accompanist for the Cranbourne Chorale. He also enjoys playing classical music in his home piano studio on his much-loved grand piano.
