Eisteddfod results

KATHLEEN Nguyen won the 11 yrs Australian composer section with a dreamy piece called Reverie by Miriam Hyde during the last week of Rockhampton's 84th eisteddfod.

"It has a lot of character and dynamics,” she said.

Kathleen, who also plays violin, credits her teacher Miss Bernadette Gorman from Major Player with whom she's studied for more than three years.

Her favourite quote is "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard”

Kathleen's composed and confident performance belied her tendency toward stage fright, her mother said.

"It's a big thing for her to get up there and go with the music,” Mrs Nguyen said.

Little sister, Megan, won a trophy the same morning in the 7 yrs and under Modern Music section, with a swinging delivery of In the Mood.

Megan also participated in ballet and jazz dance sections.

The siblings said they shared a piano at home, with whoever called dibs getting in to rehearse first.
