               Maddie, Drummer, Bachelor of Music

              Tabor is like a second home to me. Everytime I step into our music building I instantly feel at home. I never fail to be inspired by the talents of my lecturers, tutors and friends, and can always rely on them for a good laugh too! I have enjoyed playing in our ensembles and expanded my knowledge of awesome music related concepts - from pedagogy to theory and music psychology. But what I love most about Tabor is that I am able to grow as a musician and make music in the most supportive environment!  Can't wait to see what's next!

              I have absolutely loved every second of being at tabor since I began my studies in 2020. What really stands out for me at Tabor is the range of subjects we are able to study and the community. The community is something you will always be proud to be a part of, there is so much support from both students and lecturers which makes it even more enjoyable. Tabor is a place where everyone is welcome and safe, no matter their background and I think that’s really great as everyone feels accepted. We all have the same passion and being able to share that with each other is amazing. - Rhiannon, singer.

              Studying at Tabor has been great. I've really appreciated the balance of challenge vs encouragement. I feel like I'm accelerating in my development as a musician both in confidence and skill because of it. Also, the connections I've made have led to more and more opportunities to teach guitar privately and play gigs around town! Looking forward to the challenges and opportunities still to come!  - Ayden, guitarist and double bassist.

              “I love the culture so much!!! The lecturers are so supportive and care about all their students so much. Tabor Music has allowed me to improve in all sides of my musicality and gain amazing new skills. I seriously couldn't imagine being anywhere else. Spending three years (or more) is an investment in yourself and I am so glad I have chosen Tabor. I love coming to uni everyday. The lecturers and students inspire me, encourage me and help me grow.” 

              I love Tabor because of the supportive environment here. All the students and lecturers look out for one another and only want the best for me. I have made some real life-long friends and learned so much that has prepared me for real life, in my career and faith. The subjects adapt to my desired career path and allow me to prepare for the industry in many practical ways such as writing a resume, practising audition etiquette and learning practical skills for teaching both instrumentally and in a classroom. Tabor is the place to be if you want to be supported and uplifted in any career path you choose. - Caitlin, singer &  saxophonist.

              At Tabor I’ve enjoyed being taught by kind, knowledgeable, and encouraging lecturers, and having classes with friendly and supportive students. I look forward to doing the rest of the various subjects the Bachelor of Music has to offer, and I’m excited to become prepared and equipped to work professionally in the music industry. - Olivia, singer

I have really enjoyed the opportunity to explore a wide range of genres and different types of music, through both ensemble playing and course studies. The student support services, as well as the friendly lecturers and peers, have helped make my transition from high school to university comfortable and enjoyable. 🎼

              I would recommend Tabor Music for any musician who wants to develop their skills while thriving in a supportive and friendly environment!”

              Throughout the past few years, I have thoroughly enjoyed studying at Tabor. It feels like my second family, and it is such a privilege to be working with people of similar musical backgrounds and tastes. Being a rock musician, I have found the transitions to other genres to be incredibly rewarding and the lecturers have been so helpful along the way. - Jake, guitarist

              Life at Tabor has been a lot of fun and everyone is like one big family. With the help from the great lectures whome have pushed my musicianship sky high, encouraged my performance skills and created a space where I love coming to classes. I have enjoyed the experience in different types of genres. I would recommend to anyone who wants a family-like experience and great community here, to study at Tabor. - Angus, singer.
