Sara, aged 14
I spent most of my childhood abroad and I never really had any extensive music in my school. The schools in Jerusalem didn’t have the kind of music education that I get at Highbury Grove. I frequently went to concerts, operas and musicals with my parents and friends, since music has always had a big place in my family. What I never really learnt was music theory, and when I arrived at Highbbury Grove, I began to understand it. I also took on the cello here. It definitely wasn’t my first choice, I reluctantly chose it. But since I had a brilliant cello teacher, it has now become my main instrument. At school, I play in a band with great musicians. I also attend choir, ensembles and orchestras. I’m incredibly fond of music and I do see myself carrying on with it in the future.
