Nathaniel’s clarinet teacher, Claire, wrote to us to ask whether we could fund a mouthpiece for him as he was a hard-working and gifted student who desperately needed one to progress with his studies. This is the lovely email that he sent today;
Dear Jemima’s Gift,
I am extremely grateful for the mouthpiece and cannot thank you enough as I needed one for my clarinet and was using one of Claire’s mouthpieces.
I recently had my West of England Youth Orchestra audition, the mouthpiece is amazing and really allows me to play emotively and dynamically, helping my playing.
Now that I have my own mouthpiece I am going to pursue my clarinet diploma and hopefully join more orchestras, giving me more experience of being a proper musician as that is what I aspire to be – though I don’t know what path I am going to go down as I enjoy playing and composing.
Thank you once again,
The really great news is that Nathaniel passed his audition and will be joining the West of England Youth Orchestra very soon. Congratulations Nathaniel!
