Achievements

At the age of ten, after begging her parents for a clarinet for years, Renay (Wren) was finally given... a flute. It was the beginning of an unexpected but lifelong love of music. Living in Southwest Queensland meant that after a certain point, a new flute teacher had to be sought, this meant eight-hour round trips to Toowoomba for lessons every weekend. Percussion and bassoon were quickly added to the list of instruments Renay would play and she went on to win her first singing competition aged fifteen. Shortly after, Renay was named Percussionist Of The Year and received the Stan Wonders Memorial Trophy for the Maranoa. Renay was also a member of the Queensland Youth Orchestra Percussion Ensemble and The Queensland Youth Orchestra 3. A soloist for the Queensland Accordion Orchestra, she was also flautist with the Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra and in 2005, performed with the De Havilland Orchestra in Hatfield UK. Renay was a member of 'Forward Motion', 3rd place winners of the Australian Flute Ensemble Competition in 2003. Renay studied flute under the expert tutelage of Dr Karen Lonsdale and also Simo Haanterra at the Queensland Conservatorium. She has attended masterclass workshops with Michael Cox, Paul Edmund-Davies and Jane Rutter. During an extended trip to the UK, Renay worked as 'Flute Specialist' at John Myatt Woodwind and Brass and then as 'Sheet Music Department Manager' at All Flutes Plus, London. At this time, Renay became the drummer and backing vocals in an emerging band signed to a well known artist agency. Through her work, she has been privileged to meet flautists including Sir James Galway, William Bennett, Ian Clarke and Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) as well as attending and working at Flute Conventions in Melbourne, York and Manchester and spending time with David Farley, Technical Manager at Trevor James in Kent, UK. My biggest achievment to date is providing a safe place for students of all ages to come and learn the joy of music.
