Mia, aged 12
I used to play the guitar at primary school but because the teacher wasn’t very good, I never really made any progress. Since coming to Arts & Media I have learned to play the Cello and because of the fantastic teachers I am now really confident and hope to take a Grade exam this year.
I love playing music because it relaxes me and I think it has helped my concentration too. Performing at the Barbican last year was so exciting because I have never been to such a big posh place before.
I had my photo taken in a green place because when I am older I want to save the planet and make it a better place for everyone. To do this I will need to go to college and that’s why music is so important, because it will help me achieve things in my life and take me to new places.
