Dust Off The Dream

Ever since pursuing the dream of seeing my musical played on Broadway – there have been many obstacles.

In that time life goes on and I have bought businesses, sold businesses, started new businesses – but the dream has still been there in the back of my mind. One way to do this has been to have a commitment to write this blog once a month.

But last week I had an awesome opportunity to share my vision with a hungry group of music students….so please allow me to share the following that I wrote as an email to my mother…

‘Just been reflecting on my two fifty minute sessions yesterday I shared with music students at my son-in-law’s school.

I had a ball. I trust the students did too.  I certainly held their attention – what with the aid of audio, video, live music  and interactive activities.

Jai(my son-in-law) really stretched me.

I was using an interactive whiteboard for the presentation of my website, videos and audios, got the kids to type in on their iPads, even had the score of my music viewed on the screen so that the kids could follow it as it was playing. He even had me play one of my songs on the piano and sing.

I shared about the structure of a musical, the inspiration, the process, and on and on. Questions were fired back at me and I was able to encourage the Year 8 students to dream their own dreams, shared with them what it takes to see a dreams fulfilment and so much more.

Just preparing for this, and now having executed and entertained students for 100 minutes, has forged deeply in my being that I must continue to pursue my original dream of taking this musical all the way to New York.

With the advent of my success, so early in the property development arena, I now realise that I have in my hands a powerful tool to raise the necessary finances not only for a better lifestyle for me and my family, but also so that I can maintain majority financial control of my musical production all the way to Broadway.

Oh good news on the book front too. I have finally found a publisher who is interested in discussing some of my book ideas. An Australian publisher. Finally someone is listening. I’ll keep you posted.

Thanks for listening. You mum are always part of my success story. When the kids asked how I started out in music I started by saying, ‘Well when I was only six years old my mum decided to learn the piano and also that I should learn.’

Thank you so much for the gift of music and for the gift  and example of trying.’
