LUKE POMROY

Luke is an experienced and dedicated teacher, professional accompanist, part-time composer and wannabe rock god.

His love of music spans many instruments and genres. A typical day for Luke will

involve practicing Schubert on piano in the morning, teaching jazz improvisation in

the afternoon, and rocking out on guitar in the evening in a “glam rock” cover band.

on the path to achieve it.

JENNIFER ZHAO

Jennifer is a classically trained pianist who loves to jam to feel good pop music in her spare time. Music has given her the chance to tour Europe with her high school Instrumental Program, gain her AmusA diploma, and both benefited her HSC (where she was the 2015 Fort Street Raymond Sly Memorial Prize for Music) whilst also worked as an effective stress reliever. When she's not studying Law at UNSW, she loves going on spontaneous road trips with friends and spends way too much time making Spotify playlists!
