Our QMTA Incorporated Biloela Branch was originally formed in 1992 by a group of enthusiastic and dedicated teachers from Biloela and surrounding areas, with some being members of our Teacher Group today.
Local cultural activities are the annual eisteddfod, musicals and concerts. Our members and members' students support the Biloela Eisteddfod Society which celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary in 2015. The six day Eisteddfod often followed by a workshop or masterclasses, culminates with a Highlights Concert. Our Teachers’ Group offers two $100 Awards each year at the Biloela Eisteddfod, one being an Encouragement Award for a performer in the Woodwind or Brass Sections, and the other for a Promising Pianist/String Player.
Our small but active Teacher Group Committee organises workshops/masterclasses with key music educators, performances for local music students, and fund-raising activities.
Music tuition offered by our members covers a range of instruments including voice. We also encourage and organize graded assessments though the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) in August/September each year, and from 2019 Trinity College of London in October/November.
We enjoy getting together for a meeting once a term, with a Christmas dinner at the end of the year.
