As a Scholar, she participated in Master Classes with Yvonne Kenny and Helena Dix and has been studying with Sally-Anne Russell for three years. She and Jane have been working together for most of this time.

Jane Matheson is a versatile pianist who achieved her A.Mus.A when she was just 15 years old. She went on to graduate from Melbourne University with a B.Mus/B.A and further studied at the Opera Studio Melbourne and Centre of Opera Studies in Italy.

At Melbourne's Crown Casino and on Norwegian cruise line's, Jane performed as a cocktail pianist and is now the repetiteur and orchestral pianist for Lyric Opera, Citi Opera and plays for the Opera Australia Schools touring company.

Are you passionate about the Syrian refugee situation? Christopher Krambias, Jey Jeyabala and Matthew Butera (all of refugee or migrant background) have organised a fund raising event at CH James for the Collateral Repair Project (CRP), a grassroots organisation working out of Amman, Jordan to provide basic support to refugees. The event will be held on November 4th and ticket numbers are already strong. This is a great cause where the money goes to the grassroots need not to the administrators.

We are encouraging everyone to get on board with this project.
