Our MTAQ Incorporated Biloela Branch was originally formed in 1992 by a group of enthusiastic and dedicated teachers from Biloela and surrounding areas, with some being members of our Teacher Group Committee today.
Local cultural activities such as the annual eisteddfod, musicals and concerts will undoubtedly include some of our members and members' students.
2015 saw the Biloela Eisteddfod Society celebrate their 50th Anniversary. It was a week-long event, often followed by workshops or masterclasses, and culminated with a Highlights Concert. Our Teacher Group Committee offers two $100 Awards each year at the Biloela Eisteddfod, one being an Encouragement Award for a performer in the woodwind or brass sections, and the other for a Promising Pianist/String Player.
Our small but active Teacher Group Committee organises workshops/masterclasses with key music educators, performances for local music students, and fund-raising activities. Music tuition offered by our members covers a range of instruments including voice. We also encourage and organize graded assessments though the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) in August/September each year.
We enjoy getting together for a meeting once a term, with a Christmas dinner at the end of the year.
