This year's ensemble is bound to be "Ottimo" with these guys in charge!
Together, Rod and Finn will help you to create and perform music in camp ensemble that relates to the stunning local Rosewood environment.
Rod has been a long time active participant variously as musician, tutor, student and parent at the Roses Gap/Rosewood and Turramurra Music Camps.
He is an experienced performer and classroom music teacher. He loves to play guitar, ukulele and specialises in the recorder. Rod is also a keen environmentalist and worked for many years as a campaigner for the Wilderness Society, VNPA and Environment Victoria.
Finn is one of those "music camp kids" who've grown into amazingly musical, kind and generous adults. He will be a familiar face to many of you, having been heavily involved in Youth Band leadership over previous camps and can be found around campfires engaged in some gnarly harmony singing with the other "music camp kids" and the friends they've gathered together over the years.
