Cherie, aged 13

Cherie ChanI started playing violin when I was 9 years old and joined the beginner string group at the Waltham Forest Music Service.  It was only when I arrived at Frederick Bremer that I was able to get an individual lesson.  I am now preparing to take my Grade 3 exam and am involved in the Waltham Forest Intermediate Strings group, school orchestra and advanced string ensemble.  I was also lead violinist for one of the ensembles performing alongside Nicola Benedetti at the Barbican concert last year.  I have been a part of the Music Specialist School since last year where I take part in the ensembles, choir and I have recently started to learn the flute.

I love music, I like practicing and performing with friends. Playing music allows me to express myself, I get quite stressed and it allows me the opportunity to forget about everything.
