15 year old Sophia has been through many changes on her musical journey over the past few years. As well as switching first study instruments, she has started attending a specialist music school. She says:
“Moving to music school in 2020 was daunting for just a split second. However as soon as I set foot in the building all my fears dissipated. It is pretty incredible how easy it is to fit in at a place where everyone has music as a common interest. Being in a place where everyone shares a love for music is what I have always longed for. Being an Award winner makes me feel very special. I get to do amazing things that I would never have dreamt of.”
Sophia has been supported by CKT though AYM’s Awards programme since 2018. She’s made the most of the opportunities that being an Award winner brings, such as coming to our Awards Days, taking part in masterclasses with AYM Patron and Alumna Jess Gillam and our chamber music project.
