Congratulations go to Sofia Thomas who has been awarded the CMST Pupil of The Month award for September, 2017.
Sofia is a keen and committed young Saxophonist who is taught by Jessica Pascoe (Woodwind Teacher for CMST) and has recently made the move to Tenor Sax just before the summer holidays.
Mrs Pascoe commented “Sofia has shown an amazing maturity both musically and personally over the past few months. Her attendance is excellent and her attitude to learning exemplary!’
Mrs Pascoe continued to say “Sofia has now taken on the role of tenor sax player in Tretherras Jazz band after only switching to tenor just before the summer holidays. Sofia takes the bull by the horns and has asked for copies of the music to study at home and in her lessons.”
“Sofia really is a fantastic ambassador to her school music department and it is a pleasure to teach her.”
Gareth Churcher, Head of Service for CMST, said “Once again there was an amazing field of nominations which the panel found difficult to split however, Sofia’s maturity and willingness to change instruments to help the Jazz Orchestra was really rewarding to see”. Mr Churcher added “this is a really well deserved award and we look forward to hearing more about Sofia’s musical talents in the future”.
