Brendan Giambazi – Teacher – La Casa della Terra – Adolescent Program
Brendan grew up in Perth, attended John XXIII College, graduated from WAAPA in 2003 with a BA in Jazz Performance, and completed a Graduate Diploma of Education the following year. Studies prior to this included Psychology and Commerce at UWA. Two years of travel in the late nineties after leaving school cemented an appreciation for diverse culture, art, music, food, architecture and belief systems. Combining these influences, Brendan taught music in the state system until 2010. He then began teaching in the Adolescent Program of Beehive in 2011 which he found to be an extremely positive and rewarding experience. The job has offered him opportunities to develop skills in many different areas and with such a dedicated group of teachers and talented students to work with and an interested and supportive wider Beehive community, Brendan looks forward to many more positive and productive years at the school.
