My son started at EJMS aged eight, and left when he was 18! Not only did he become a very competent trumpeter, but his confidence and his love of music in general blossomed. Over the years this has opened – and continues to open – so many doors to him, both musical and social. EJMS has been a very important and positive part of his life.
