Meeting The Head Office Team - Bruce Fethers - Co-owner & Managing Director

Bruce Fethers is Mini Maestros’ Managing Director and co-owner.

Bruce had a career as a lawyer and then as a business executive before coming to Mini Maestros. An accomplished musician, Bruce spent many years as a church organist and conductor of choirs. He was the organist for Trinity College and Ormond College choirs, conducted Schola Cantorum, and for 17 years was the organist, choir conductor and music director at St John’s Anglican Church, East Malvern.

The combination of his logical mind and his ability to empathise with others makes Bruce a natural leader. His experience and expertise have seen Mini Maestros grow and flourish in his care.

He spends his days at the office doing the important, behind-the scenes work that keeps Mini Maestros thriving, as well as leading franchisee meetings and events. Together with his wife and co-owner Jennifer Smith, he steers the overall direction of the company. As the only man in the office building, Bruce also brings with him some masculine energy to an oestrogen-filled office!

Bruce has four children who all have all inherited his musical genes, with the two youngest having gone through the Mini Maestros program.

A man of many talents, in his spare time Bruce enjoys cooking creative meals for his family, fixing and building things around the house and office, and reading historical novels.

We interviewed Bruce about super powers, life advice and deserted islands. Here is what he had to say…

Question 1: Assuming you already have food and water, what 3 things would you take to a deserted island?

My family, music and confidence.

Question 2: Who is your favourite band/musician at the moment?

J. S. Bach has been my favourite musician for the last 30 years!

Question 3: What superpower would you like to have and why?

The ability to turn the world’s narrative on its head so that we can be energised by good news, openness and selflessness instead of consumed by bad news, denial and selfishness.

Question 4: What are 3 pieces of advice you would give to a child as they embark on their life’s journey?

Always care for those around you, remembering that those who want to hurt may need the most care.

Be confident and believe and trust in your own abilities.

Never stop learning.

Question 5: What’s the best thing about working for Mini Maestros and being part of the Head Office team?

Being Managing Director of Mini Maestros is a great honour. Everyone at Mini Maestros is privileged to be working with children and helping them to be equipped to face life’s challenges and sharing our love of music. It’s all about nurturing confident learners and doing our little bit to shape the future.
