Lyle Jenkins (Drum Student with Dayna Hopkins)
“My drumming journey started when I was about 13. I most definitely wasn’t a natural to begin with, I actually came close to giving up within my first 6 months… easily would have been the BIGGEST mistake of my life. So no matter how hard it seems at the start, stick with it… it’s worth it!
I have been playing for 9 years with 1 of those years under the guidance of Dayna! My time at BFSM has changed the way I see myself as a musician. It has also given me loads of confidence, to the point that (if I get in) I am going to go to TAFE to study music full time, boo yah! I am currently drumming for a Hard Rock/Blues band, and since taking singing lessons with Bianca, I have started singing for a Punk/Rock band.
Drums > Breathing > Sleeping > Eating.”

Cassandra O’Day (Singing Student with Bianca Fenn)
‘I’m currently a grade six student looking forward to high school. I have always loved to perform, I have tried most things from dancing to circus training but mostly I have loved to sing. I have alw…ays been apart of the school choir and was lucky enough to take part in the Victorian State School Spectacular of 2012. This year I joined Glee Club and it’s been great fun and I have made good friends. I love to sing and one day I hope to do more with it.’
