A professional musician for over 25 years and has been teaching for the past 17 years.
Trudy’s specialty is performance, auditions and finessing pieces before performances.
Whose angelic voice is bound to astound, spent her formative years singing in bands from Victoria to Western Australia. A career divergence found her working in the field of medicine, both as a clinician and a university lecturer.
In between these demanding occupations she still found time to sing, not only as a soloist but also in various duos, bands, and the respected Brisbane Gospel Choir, (an experience that Trudy believes was a key element to her current vocal style).
Trudy brings an exuberant sense of fun and is a sparkling presence on stage.
In 2004 she joined musical forces with Shane Pacey (front man to the Bondi Cigars), to form “Mackenzie/Pacey”, an acoustic duo who released “Monkey Business”, their first of many CD’S and recordings. Trudy is also the bassist and vocalist for The Shane Pacey Trio, whose first CD was titled “Repayment”.
The Duo has allowed Trudy to spread her song writing wings and has given her the opportunity to play percussion and bass guitar.
Trudy brings her passion for music, 25 years experience as a professional musician, a great sense of humour and her philosophy of sharing her skills, which she believes to be of the utmost importance.
This combination will only serve to benefit her students.
