Instrumental and singing lessons are popular at Packwood and we have many enthusiastic and talented musicians of all ages. However, it is not often that children of prep school age reach the heights of Grade 7, let alone before their 11th birthday.
Everyone was highly impressed in assembly on Monday when Year 6 pupil, Daniel G, our star pianist and cellist, was presented with his Grade 7 piano certificate – awarded with Distinction!
Head of Music, Mrs Boutwood, remarked, “Daniel is also working on Grade 6 cello and is a Grade 5 singer. He manages to practise for at least an hour each day after school and studies at the Junior RNCM on Saturdays. He is an outstanding musician in all areas and a great asset to Packwood’s music department – we definitely appreciate having him!”
