"I love playing my violin."

Daniel, who has been playing the violin for eight years, has weekly 30 minute lessons with Jonathan Trim through Marling School.

He will now attend exciting residential courses with tutors from major national orchestras and specialist music schools, culminating with performances at prestigious venues across the country.
