We are thrilled to see pupils who starting playing musical instruments whilst at Hayes Primary School continuing their enjoyment of music as they move on to secondary schools.
Emma started playing the clarinet in Year 4, taking lessons during school days at Hayes Primary. Since then, she has attained Grade 8, plays in the Hayes School Concert Band and is co-leader of the Hayes School Jazz Band. She also plays in the Bromley Youth Symphony Orchestra and Bromley Youth Concert Band.
Emma was active in the Hayes Primary School choir, which gave her amazing experiences like performing at the Fairfield Halls, the Royal Albert Hall and once accompanying André Rieu in a concert at the O2. She was also a member of the Hayes Primary School orchestra which helped her to develop ensemble skills early on. Now, she is a member of every choir possible at Hayes School, including the Chamber Choir.
Being involved in music both at school and BYMT has provided her with a wealth of opportunities such as travelling to several European countries on music tours. In 2017, she was in the BYMT Concert Band that competed in the World Music Contest at Kerkrade in the Netherlands and this year they are performing at the World Music Festival in Lisbon, Portugal.
