  • getting rid of Ollie!!!

    For a week during the summer...... he's just got a letter to say he's been accepted fro a bursary on a violin course in ampleforth college. What a relief.... coz he wouldn't have been going unless he'd got the bursary it costs nearly a thousand.
    He's been very lucky with teaching and funding for his violin playing and singing (singing soon to become piano studies due to his voice breaking) because he was accepted onto a tallented and gifted scheme where he's given 5 hours tuition on a sunday every week and now this course on top!
    Don't know how he'll cope away from home as his head is permanently in the clouds.

        Thats fantastic news
        Congratulations to Ollie!

        I used to be a violin player until i fell out of bed one day and broke my left hands little finger. Had to give it up as a result, the little mite never worked properly since.

        I'm sure he will have a fantastic time
        It will be you doing all the worrying. He'll be all 'cool', but secretly im sure he will miss you too

          That's great. I'd have never got a bursary with my clarinet playing - it wasn't bursary standard, even if someone had me playing at their wedding.

          I'm sure he'll have a great time!

            That's great news. I'm sure he'll have a wonderful time - we'll need a report, obviously.
