Happy client feedback from our recent event at Pialligo Estate, Canberra:

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the performance at the Apis Christmas party on Friday night.

The feedback has been lovely about the performance, everyone thought it was a very nice touch to start the evening. Pity that the weather had us cooped up inside, but that was easily forgotten.

I’d like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic entrance to 2017.

Kind regards

On Saturday night, Stringspace provided a solo violinist for a marriage proposal. If you are looking for ideas, this is a truly great one:
Hana, our violinist, is waiting casually on New South Head Road, Rose Bay with her violin in its case. A couple come walking towards her. The guy asks her if she knows a particular (special) song that’s not very well known. She says she does and gets her violin out. As she’s playing he proposes! The girl says YES! Perfect!

We talked just after Mum’s party (on 19 March) but now that life has returned pretty much to normal, I just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful music.

Mum was quite overwhelmed when she discovered that a trio was performing for the afternoon and absolutely loved the music. Indeed all the guests were delighted with the performance. Even some passers-by stopped to listen.

Could you please thank the girls again for their wonderful music and important contribution to Mum’s very special day, they were delightful.

Once again thank you so much. I enjoyed working with you on the music surprise, and wish you every success with Stringspace, and for the future.

 “The super sweet Ty and Emma were married at the Abbotsford Convent this afternoon. What an afternoon it was, the clouds parted and the sun came out. The boys looked stunning and relaxed as I met them in the Bridal suite. They were sipping bourbon and having a great time.
Emma looked simply stunning and her two flower girls were so cute. The team at Bursaria Fine Foods did an amazing job with the coordination and set-up, it is always divine there. Shane from Botanics outdid himself with the amazing flowers and garlands. I loved Ty’s line that “Emma has the beauty of one thousand goddesses and the kindness of a thousand saints.” Cue “augh moment”
The gorgeous girls from Stringspace played as Emma walked down the aisle. Jess Tremp from Brown Paper Parcel Photography was documenting the day and Suzie was the videographer. Congrats you super sweet lovebirds!!”

Are you a fun teacher or keen student? We here at Stringspace have designed “PaperPark” Practice Books for music students. Please check out our website:

“Some time last year I saw one of your Practice books, I had a look through and it was exactly the sort of thing I’ve been looking for. I took a photo of it and of course did nothing about it until now when the year has already started. Very typical of me 🙂
Anyways… could I order 20 copies please.”
