Eisteddfod results

ISAAC Graham took out five aggregate and adjudicator trophies during Rockhampton's 84th eisteddfod which concluded on Friday.

The 17-year old skypes his music teacher Angela Taylor in Brisbane, and also attends the Faith Christian School via distance education.

Isaac listens to and plays a broad range of genres but his favourite is baroque. He leaned into the piano as he played Mozart is my Friend to take out his age group's Quick Study section, which provided participants with the set piece only a week before.

"I think you have to really get into it, get in the zone, if you don't want to be distracted by the audience,” he said.

"It's about capturing the essence of the music.”
