Alec has been awarded a grant to help with the cost of him starting at the National Children’s Brass Band of Great Britain, due to his family being unable to cover all the costs. He has spent this summer practising lots, in preparation for playing in a full-size brass band for the first time next year! Here is what Alec has said to us:

‘I am so excited to be able to go and experience playing in a full-size brass band and learn new and challenging music. I also hope I will be able to play lots of different percussion instruments!’
