Pupil Profile: Alex Love of the Prep School

Alex with his certificate and silver medal.

Young Alex recently entered the North Yorkshire Young Musician of the Year competition with his electric guitar and found himself competing with 400 other youngsters for the coveted title. Imagine his delight when he found that he had made it through the heats to perform in front of a huge crowd at Selby Abbey.

Alex took the opportunity to play the song Run to You, by Bryan Adams on his guitar. Some of us are old enough to remember this song from the first time when it was a big hit for Bryan! Alex must have really impressed the judges though, because he came a fantastic second! A tremendous feat, which he should be very proud of, especially given the huge number of other talented musicians he was up against in the “strings” class.
