Xavier (Age 15)
I have taught quite a few boys from Scots College over the years and am always very fascinated to find out more about their Glengarry program.
Glengarry is a unique outdoor education, six-month residential experience for all Year 9 students at Scots College in Sydney.
Xavier comes back from Glengarry taller, stronger and more mature.
He talks about what the 6 months living in the bush is like. What hobbies he picks up after Glengarry.
A very calm, well-spoken boy Xavier answers all my random fast speed questions about everything Glengarry.
Ladies and gentleman, my dear Mr Xavier Foster.
Angelina is my pretty 16-year-old girl who has lots of interesting things to share.
It's quite hard to edit Angelina's episode because there are lots of hilarious juicy stuff that we can't put on Air and it's just too funny.
She talks about her passion for drama and musicals, beaches, boyfriends, formal and what's like to have an Instagram ambassador account.
A super-fast pace conversation with an amazing rap at the end!!
Zetong seems very embarrassed to talk about the gifted and talented enrichment program that he was selected in school.
He continuous tries to say how boring it is but you can see he is one very intelligent boy.
He talks about how much he loves his lego class and as an only child, what he does to entertain himself with technology.
I asked him to sing songs from "Where I want to be" from the musical "Chess", as well as a famous Taiwanese pop song "The direction of heart".
He came to Australia from China at age 3, it's quite remarkable to see he is very fluent in both languages.
Brandon was the first guest for our podcast show.
One year on, I invited him back to the show to sing. His voice is so much lower now and you can hear the thought is much more mature. I especially like this song "Aftermath" that he wrote. He got weird and very uncomfortable when I tease about his girlfriend issues so I will just let you listen to this yourself.
So different from the crazy 6-year old Brandon that I used to teach not too long ago.
A hilarious, random conversation between us that will never change with time.
Ladies and gentlemen, My dear 14-year-old- Mr Brandon Wu.
It’s still hard to believe Millie was first here in our mosman studio at age 3 at her brother’s lesson.
17 year old Millie talks about how important singing playing a part in her sometimes stressful and at times anxious teenage life. Her view on going to a all girl school since kindergarten is also very interesting.
I always believe people come across each other’s path for a reason. When she sings you can’t help but indulge in her thoughts and voice.
Miss Millie Saric, the only new student I take this year and I am so glad I did.
Bea is the girliest 10-year-old girl I know who has a massive collection of Barbies and just loves everything about fairies, unicorns and mermaids!
"If I am on the horse, I feel nothing else matters," said Bea. She started horse riding at age 6 and talks fondly about her horse "Isabelle". She sings "A million dreams" from The Greatest Showman and "home" from the musical Wonderland.
It's a really cute, sweet conversation with my little Miss Beatrix Cadman.
Olina (Age 22)
It’s hard to believe that Olina is 22 now. She was my little music girl for a very long time.
She talks about what life is like after University, the preparation progress for her thesis and the interesting part-time job in politics.
Olina is a real combination of East meets West. One minute she drinks, parties and tackles in Rugby field and the next minute she speaks fluent Chinese and works towards the law entrance exam.
“Don’t drink too much.” she said to all the kids…
Sometimes crazy sometimes nerdy.
My dear Miss Olina Parrish
Adriana is the youngest student of mine. She has massive big eyes with the longest eyelashes I have ever seen and the most dramatic facial expression at all times.
She talks about what is like to be a cheerleader and what life is like with two big brothers .
You must listen to our hilarious conversation to find out what she really wants to include in her lunchbox and what is the ideal lunch!
Ladies and gentleman,
Our dear little Miss Adriana Brindisi
Maddie (Age 18) with Singing LIVE
Maddie is my musical baby.
After 6 years in Dubai this is the first time she returned to our mosman studio. She talks about her childhood in Mosman, what life is Dubai is like and sings songs range from musical theatre to opera.
Always amazing to see kids growing from shy little girl to well spoken poised young lady.
Miss Maddison Schneider, will always be my dear musical baby.
Abby (Age 15) with Singing LIVE
This was the podcast episode that I laughed the most throughout the entire recording process.
Abby talked about what’s like to have a twin sister and how stressful year 10 formal can get.
The most hilarious part is when Abby taught me how to sing with a Scottish accent!
A very strong singer and a funny girl I am sure you will laugh out loud with us.
She will also make you want to visit Scotland.
My one and only, Miss Abby McMillan.
