To maintain the highest quality of work, feedback is always sought…

Below are the support letters I recently received when applying for a Regional Arts Development Fund grant and I was so touched by the quality of support because they were talking about me! Truly humbled

Here’s comments from participants from the many community and professional music and creative projects I have borne into existence or had the pleasure of being part of a creative arts delivery team.

‘Melinda has to come back again.  What she achieved in such a limited time is nothing short of amazing to have the kids up performing their own song on stage.  Just wonderful for country kids’
