I've been accepted to study a Master of Music Performance at the Norwegian Academy of Music, and I need your help to get there!

Hi, my name is Kenny Keppel and I'm a clarinetist from Auckland, NZ.

I've spent the last 6 years at the University of Auckland and the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), working like crazy to fulfill my dream of playing music for a living.

Earlier this year I successfully auditioned to study with the Principal Clarinet of the Norwegian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Björn Nyman at the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH).

This is a huge opportunity for me to continue to learn from a fantastic teacher at an acclaimed institution in Europe, and it's been a goal of mine for a long, long time.

If you can spare a donation, it'll go towards accommodation, food, transport and reeds! Plus,  I'd love to exceed my goal, as anything extra would help me to take advantage of opportunities like summer academies, job auditions, festivals and masterclasses while in Europe.

Thank you so much to everyone who's supported me this far!

I'm really excited for the future.

    A little update / thankyou for my campaign supporters - thank you SO MUCH to everyone who's chipped in to help me get this far!

    We're sitting at 45% with just 17 days left :)

    Remember that Boosted is an all-or-nothing deal, so I won't get anything if the goal isn't met. Every donation counts!

    Thanks for your support everyone <3 can't believe this is all happening 😃 and I hope to see many of you in Melbourne on the 30th!
