Joya, aged 18
When I started at Highbury Grove, I was given the opportunity to learn the violin in the Music Specialist School. I remember being inspired by the School’s Scholars Orchestra and was accepted into it after achieving a Grade 2 Distinction. I have recently completed my Grade 5 on the violin. Being exposed to other enthusiastic musicians propelled my desire to seek more musical extracurricular activities. Hence, I joined MiSST’s Saturday School programme in Year 10.
Music has always played a huge role in my life, and the MiSST programme has helped push my abilities by providing opportunities to not only tour Europe and play in prestigious venues but to also pass on my musical knowledge unto others.
