A BROTHER and sister have been proving they have what it takes to hit the high notes in their music exams.

Peter Sibley (17) and sister Shona (15), from Long Sutton, have both achieved excellent results in tests at Spalding Music Centre.

Peter has received his Music Diploma after achieving Grade Eight for his trombone last year.

The Spalding Grammar School Sixth Form pupil plays with semi-professional musicians the Wissippi Jazzmen, as well as the South Lincolnshire Youth Orchestra.

Shona, a pupil at Spalding High School, has secured Grade Seven for her trumpet.

The level would not normally be expected to be reached until a musician moves in to the Sixth Form.

Shona, who has been playing the trumpet for about nine years, plays for both the South Lincolnshire Youth Orchestra and the county youth orchestra.
