Local boy brings the beat to Brisbane
MORE than 750 primary school music students learnt from the best at the inaugural SHEP Primary program last weekend.
One of them is Chinchilla Christian College Year 6 student Grant Dolbel.
Grant has already been recognised for his talent in percussion, participating in Middle School SHEP earlier this year and travelling to Brisbane regularly for specialist lessons.
He showcased his skills again at SHEP (State Honours Ensemble Program) Primary, during two days of intensive musicmaking, which culminated in four finale concerts at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.
Grant said it was an honour to be selected.
“I went down to the middle school SHEP and it was really enjoyable so I couldn’t wait to go.
“I’ve just always liked percussion since I started when I was seven. I just loved it and practise all the time.”
PERCUSSIONIST: Chinchilla Christian College Year 6 student Grant Dolbel.
