Organising accompaniment for AMEB exams or auditions is often a last minute thought and can be stressful. I do my best to help ease anxieties, work through final preparation and polish the student's performance, as well as helping in areas such as analysis and aural testing if needed. Being an accompanist is a comprehensive role that often requires one to go beyond the job description, and that's okay- everyone's preparation is different and another pair of eyes can be invaluable. If needed, sessions will also consolidate general knowledge, analysis, aural, sight reading skills, and performance craft. There is great value in getting another perspective whilst refining pieces (correcting the odd note, showing sensitivity to style and phrasing etc.) Improving upon each of these areas will aid a student getting the best mark possible, so they don't get let down by having neglected these often-forgotten components under examination. Plus, with an accompanist they get to have a friendly face in the exam room for extra moral support!
