MINI Mozarts from along the coast have showcased their talents at the Piano Academy's Annual Performance and Awards Show.

The awards, held at Club Tropicana, Chapel St Leonards, proved so popular that the day had to be split into two performances.

Tutor and owner April Chapman said: "We had so many students that wanted to perform this year that we split the day into two shows.

"The first show was for our Mini Mozarts aged four to seven years along with some inspirational performances from some of our more experienced students."

Awards were given out to those students that had been recognised for outstanding improvement, effort and achievement.

The main show started at 4pm and was packed with talent with an age range of six to 76 years.

April added: "We had a great variety of performances which included piano solos, duets, solo singers and bands.

"We also gave out loads of trophies, certificates and music book prizes to recognise students outstanding progress in piano, vocal and music theory studies."

The Pupil of the Year Award went to Sebastian Carrington. Sebastian is only six years old and during the last 12 months has improved from Grade two to Grade six and his music theory knowledge ability from Grade one to Grade four.

April said: "He turned out a fantastic note perfect performance for us on the day in both shows and earlier this year he successfully secured a place at the Birmingham Conservatoire.

"It was a very proud day for me to see how much all the students had improved since our last show.

"Sincere thanks to our students, their family and friends for turning out to support all the performers on the day."
