“I have progressed from standing outside the scouts hall on a wintry night with trepidation and shyness to singing at the Opera House with 1000 other singers. I have learnt to "play" guitar, taken up singing lessons and piano lessons and that only came about because of the encouragement I received at Toongabbie Music Club”.
“I always wanted to perform but was never game. I spent years doodling about alone. Finally an old mate who had been to Toongabbie dragged me along and it was like coming home - all these like minded people of wide ranging performance ability – all there to play and to give support”
