'In the past year my son has developed hugely as a musician. The holistic approach that the staff at Pre-Conservatoire take has meant that he has the confidence and knowledge to take his performing and composing forward. He is so inspired by the work he does on Wednesdays that he now has written most of his first album and has got involved with performing in many different settings.'
