Ethan gains place at Conservatoire

Ethan first picked up a trumpet at the age of 11 and immediately realised he had a natural affinity for the instrument.  His first Pebble Trust talent grant helped him buy his own trumpet and within 2 years he was studying for his Grade 6 exam.  Subsequent talent grants enabled Ethan to tour Europe with the Brighton Youth Orchestra.  He also plays with his band, Kool-Aid Acid Test. Ethan was offered a place at every conservatoire he auditioned at and has chosen Birmingham.  He will be studying under innovative jazz trumpeter, 'Percy' Pursglove.
