Studying music at the University of Melbourne has been a dream for Colac’s Tegan Murray for “a really long time”.
The former Trinity College student said she had wanted to study for a Bachelor of Music since Year Nine, and last Monday night her dream became a reality.
Tegan, who was on a music camp when she found out, checked her offer on the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre website.
Tegan, 18, started to play the alto saxophone in Year Seven.
For the university to accept her into the prestigious course, she had to pass an interview and an audition.
Tegan said music had always played an important role in her life and development.
“It’s given me more confidence to perform and get up in front of people and do something,” she said.
Tegan said she would like to be a solo performer or a teacher when she completed the four-year degree.
