Dan (not his real name) is a highly accomplished viola and piano player and, aged 15, already attends Saturday classes at one of London’s most prestigious music schools.
In order to progress to Grade 8 viola and beyond, he needed a new viola. His parents contacted THF and, having met the income threshold for a bursary, the charity was able to supplement a grant from EMI to enable Dan to purchase the viola.
Dan said in his application: “I would love to pursue a career as a professional viola player and be a successful performer, both as an individual and by taking part in chamber and orchestral organisations.”
We wish Dan every success in his musical journey.
