Congratulations go to Cerys Osborne who has been awarded the CMST Pupil of The Month award for April 2017.


Cerys started learning the French Horn just over a year ago and in the space of 12 months has passed both her Grade 1 and Grade 3 exams. On Wednesday 15th March she took part in her first Trigg Winds concert; sat on the end in full view of all the audience as the only French Horn in the Wind Orchestra.

Her teacher Anna Minear said “following the concert I had members of the audience coming up to me to say how well the young French Horn player performed.

I think for someone who has been learning just over 12 months from scratch, on an instrument that can be quite tricky, it is a fantastic achievement to perform with such confidence in an orchestra of mostly secondary school-aged players.”

Gareth Churcher, Head of Service for CMST, added “it is a real delight to read the various nominations each month and witness the phenomenal development of some of our CMST pupils. Furthermore, the inspirational work of our teachers is clearly evident and something that I am very proud of.”

Well done Cerys for this amazing achievement and congratulation to all those that have been nominated so far this year, this is a real testament from your CMST teachers of how well they believe you are progressing.
