Why Music Is Life To Us

Dene Menzel

n. Founder & Creative Director of Branthem.

Hi, and welcome to Branthem. My name is Dene Menzel and I am the Founder and Creative Director, and well you could say that music has been my entire life.

Music and connection, has been a common thread in everything that I have been inspired to create, from being a wedding organist at the age of 13, to a 10 year career running a successful performing arts company and three reputable pop choirs in Melbourne, to publishing my first book, The Voice Factor, in 2013 a ‘how to sing’ book compressed in 5 easy steps. which became a #1 Best Seller in 4 categories on Amazon in the US and Australia.

Since my book success in 2013, I have since been inspired to use technology to pioneer music connection through smartphone and internet. One of my giveback projects brought together people from 24 different countries to sing virtually via smartphone for International Peace Day 2016.

The song - which was my rewrite of Waltzing Matilda, revamped for a global message was led by multi-award winning artist Kate Ceberano, and the video was shared across social media hundreds of times, and received beautiful comments from all around the world.  

What I loved about this project was experiencing first hand how music can cross barriers of race, age, gender, and culture 

Today, Branthem is a product of 45 years of experience in both music and business.

It is a culmination of my vision for innovation, my commitment to excellence and my belief in the 'magic' of music to connect deeply and authentically with the beauty in the human spirit.
