‘Ex­tra­or­di­nary’ feat for clar­inet play­ers

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - THE DAY THE EARTH SHOOK -

TWO stu­dents from High­worth Gram­mar School have achieved diplo­mas in clar­inet play­ing. A-level mu­sic stu­dent Leah Welch, 18, gained a dis­tinc­tion from the Trin­ity School of Mu­sic, while Han­nah Scott-Deuchar, 15, also gained a diploma.

Julie Moore, head of mu­sic at the school in Quan­tock Drive, Ash­ford, said: “They are both ex­tremely good. You don’t ex­pect to get many stu­dents who reach that stan­dard.

“Han­nah is only in Year 11 so it is ex­tra­or­di­nary that she achieved that level.”

Both girls play in the school’s clar­inet quar­tet.
