TRACTION on 4MBS Classic FM’s “My Musical Journey” with Gary Thorpe

It was a wonderful experience for Sandy Murdoch, TRACTION’s Founder and CEO, to be hosted by Gary Thorpe in the 4MBS Classic FM Brisbane studio for an episode of “My Musical Journey” which aired on 14th August 2021.

TRACTION empowers young people through hands-on learning and mentoring programs and this episode on 4MBS provided the opportunity for Sandy to introduce TRACTION to listeners.

Throughout the interview, Gary did a fantastic job featuring the early works of famous composers who showed their potential at a young age, despite them facing many challenges. The works were created when composers including Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich and Britten were aged between 11 and 17 years of age.
