Junior Trinity student awarded ARBSM Silver Award

Young cellist Lauren Hele, who is studying at Trinity Laban’s Junior Trinity music school, has been awarded an ARBSM Silver Award following her distinction mark in her Grade 8 cello exam.

The ABRSM gives out only a small number of awards each year, which recognise those music students who achieve exceptionally high marks in their Grade, 6, 7 and 8 exams. Lauren receives £150 to help her further her musical studies, and a special certificate to mark the achievement.

Lauren says: “I’m extremely proud to be awarded this. During my preparation, I didn’t think I’d get a distinction, let alone an award. I hope to put the money towards a new instrument.”

Currently studying for her A-levels, Lauren is planning on taking a gap year after school to study music before auditioning for conservatoires.

Junior Trinity is a Saturday School for 3-19 year olds. In 1906, it was the first Junior Department of a UK conservatoire to open its doors to schoolchildren on Saturdays. Since then thousands of young people have benefited from the opportunities to make music as individuals and in a wide variety of small and large ensembles. From Trinity Teenies aged 3-5 right through to university and conservatoire entrance, it is Junior Trinity’s aim to encourage a lifelong interest in music and to give our students the opportunities to develop to their maximum potential.
