Teacher Amanda Rice is delighted to be able to present her winner, Jenna Cowling.
“Jenna has been learning the bassoon since February 2018 and has made amazing progress. She’s passed her Bronze Music Medal with excellence before the summer. She is also a member of the next steps ensemble which she attends on a weekly basis and is developing a good ear for ensemble playing.”
Amanda also said, “Her commitment this term to both lessons and next steps has been brilliant and she is developing into a capable young musician.”
Gareth Churcher, Head of Service for CMST, commented “This trio of musicians typically demonstrates that there can be great achievement at the early stages of development. It is just as important to recognise and applaud this with musicians just embarking on their musical careers as it is with our more advanced instrumentalists. My sincere thanks goes to the staff who are so inspiring to these pupils as their enthusiasm and encouragement has a huge impact on their learning.”
