FOUR students from Marist College Emerald aren't full of hot air but have every right to blow their own trumpet.

Middle school students Enoha McMeikan, Daniel Adams, Victoria Roberts and Nicholas Stallard were nominated to take part in the third annual State Honours Ensemble Program run by Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University with North Rockhampton State High.

SHEP was held over two-and-a-half days at the weekend in Rockhampton with Enoha, Victoria and Nicholas joining 168 students from around Central Queensland.

Marist College music co-ordinator James Raschle said the three students had a good time.

"Feedback so far is that it was a very positive and enjoyable experience," Mr Raschle said.

The students said they had been looking forward to attending the program though they admitted there were nerves amid the excitement.

The participants were given the opportunity to collaborate with a team of four conductors from the Queensland Conservatorium.

"It's a very good learning experience; it allows students to work with other conductors and musicians who are recognised in Australia and Queensland," James said.

"They also get to socialise with other students of similar interests."
