The Music Makers - Nathaniel Taylor
The reluctant music maker
Nathaniel Taylor moved to Birregurra, with his new bride Elizabeth Braid, at the beginning of 2014, after securing his first teaching position as Teacher of Music at Trinity College, Colac.
His music making had an early start with piano lessons, aged 5. Like so many music students, he loved playing but not so much practicing. A change of teacher, to one who recognised, stretched and extended his talent, enabled the young Nathaniel to work through the AMEB stream. He went to Ballarat's Clarendon College, a secondary school renowned for it's strong music program, where he added the violin to his repertoire and played it in the school orchestra. His VCE subjects included Music Styles, Solo Performance/Classical Piano.
