My 8 year-old daughter took up the trumpet just over a year ago, but has loved it from day 1. That’s why I am SO PROUD of the fact that she wanted to take the Grade 2 Trumpet exam, and even more than that, that she worked and practiced hard, to do well in it.
I’m glad to say that it all paid off and that she scored a 94 out of 100, smashing the Distinction level for the exam.
An important lesson for all of us about effort, reward, and following a dream.
I look forward to where her dreams take her from here … but there has been mention of the London Philharmonic Orchestra!!
