Steve teaches, composes, mentors and performs. He seeks an integrated approach to life, art, faith and relationships. Steve composes music from life experiences, performs at gigs and festivals, facilitates arts workshops and conferences. He holds a Bachelor of Arts (Contemporary Music) and Grad Dip Ed. He has a passion for teaching Secondary Music and developing integrated curriculum.
Hannah was formerly based in the inner west of Sydney where she studied dance at Wesley Institute (she returned to lecture and Co-ordinate the dance program from 2002 to 2009) and holds a Masters in Visual and Performing Arts (CSU). Her creative passions are collaborative practice informed by dance processes, permaculture and communal sustainability, and nurturing mentoring relationships.
