Tommy has always had the goal of playing the cor anglais in a professional orchestra but without his own instruments, this felt impossible. We helped him purchase one of his own and he is now on his way to studying at the Royal Northern College of Music!

These are some words he sent over:

‘My long term career goal is to play oboe and cor anglais in a professional orchestra, so to have both instruments at my disposal would make achieving this more of a reality. I will be beginning a Master’s of Music in Performance at the Royal Northern College of Music later this year, so having a cor anglais of my own means I can excel with more practice.’
