I began at Highbury Grove in 2011. I already had some musical experience, having learnt the violin for two years with Music First. Also during my time at Gillespie Primary School, I started learning the trumpet and piano.
I joined Highbury Grove’s music specialist school in year 7, where I had double bass lessons for three years. Highbury Grove offered countless ensemble and performance opportunities which allowed me to really develop as a musician. I continued my trumpet playing in the school choir, orchestra, brass ensemble and in the pit band for the annual musical. Consequently, in 2015 I was put forward to attend the National Youth Orchestra Inspire Orchestra; an incredible course which offered a taste of life in the NYO. It was very and quickly advanced my development as a musician.
I left Highbury Grove in 2016 to go to Woodhouse College Sixth Form but I remained connected to MiSST. At Saturday Music School I led the brass sectionals which challenged and improved my leadership skills. In 2017 I gained a seat at the London Schools Symphony Orchestra which was great fun and allowed me to keep up my love for orchestral playing. This year I am taking a gap year, having received an offer to study music at Cambridge next year. I still play in the LSSO and am currently an intern at MiSST where I support with admin and teaching in schools.
