B Mus Ed, Sydney Conservatorium.
Donna has served as a passionate advocate for Music Education in the Western Region for over 30 years.
After a long and distinguished career as a music teacher with the Department of Education and Communities, in 2002 Donna was awarded the Director General’s Award for Excellent Service to Public Education.
Prior to becoming Music Director of the Orange Regional Conservatorium in 2014, Donna served as Head of Keyboard and Academic Studies for many years.
Her diverse role at the conservatorium has seen her administer the piano faculty, provide accompaniment services, prepare students for piano/musicianship examinations and performances, teach music in schools, nurture and maintain links with local schools, provide professional learning workshops for classroom teachers and conduct community and school choirs.
Donna delights in being able to provide quality music experiences to people of all ages and abilities in the Orange community.
Kiah is excited to join the Conservatorium in 2019 after accounting and auditing in public practice for over 10 years. She has her Bachelor of Business (Accounting), Master of Business Administration, Cert IV in Training and Assessing, and is a Chartered Accountant. Kiah has worked with many not-for-profits just like the Conservatorium, during her career. Kiah is looking forward to the opportunity to provide support to Management, the Board and our lovely staff and students over the coming years. She has already been inspired to get back into playing her guitar and to introduce her young daughter to the world of music.
