Undaunted by the state of music education in schools, Glenis Malkin started her own music school in a professionally-equipped studio at her home in Moulton.
One of her students, Charlotte Lincoln (16), has just passed her final Grade 8 cello exam with distinction. The Deepings School pupil has won a place to be a member of the Britten Sinfonia Academy.
To celebrate the school’s first year – and the success of its students – Glenis is holding a concert at Ayscoughfee Hall School in Spalding on Saturday, June 8 (7pm). Her students, cellists from the National Children’s Orchestra and Glenis’s own professional cello quartet, The Cello Company, will be performing.
She said: “My students have continued to achieve an impressive array of exam passes and played in one concert already this year.
“For them now to play alongside professional cellists is very exciting and encouraging and they gain a huge amount in terms of achievement, fun and self-esteem.”
Tickets for the concert are £6, available on the door or from Glenis on 01406 370059.
