Albyn musician Emily hits the right notes to get top marks in exams

Emily – Albyn School’s Upper School Musician of the Year – was delighted when she found out she had received five A’s at Higher level (Chemistry, Geography, English, Human Biology and Mathematics).

“I am really happy with my results. I was confident I did the best I could,” said Emily who joined Albyn School in P7.

The talented pupil, who performed with the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland last month, plays the flute, piccolo as well as the piano.

“I have been part of the orchestra for a few years, progressing through different levels,” said Emily whose main instrument is the flute.

Emily has just returned from European Youth Music Week – an annual summer course for advanced young instrumentalists where she had the unique opportunity to work with top orchestral conductors.

She said: “It was really fun and there were people from many different countries.”

Once her Albyn journey concludes, she would love to study music.

Emily said: “I am thinking of applying to conservatories. If that does not work out, then I will want to study music at university.”
