WAAPA is offering an extraordinary opportunity for students preparing for their looming WACE music exams.
In a series of free Ace your WACE workshops, students studying music will perform in front of WAAPA’s classical lecturers who will help prepare them for their performance exams.
Each student will be advised on how to bring their music to life to ensure that they perform at their best when being examined. The workshop will cover how to tame one’s nerves, polish a performance and dazzle any audience to ensure maximum results.
