Eleanor took her grade three singing exam in July and has just received her certificate for it. She's got another distinction, having got distinctions for both her grade one and grade two previously.
Not only that, but her singing teacher is especially pleased with her as she got a total of ninety five marks out of a hundred, she only dropped five marks in the whole exam. Her singing teacher hasn't ever had a student who has achieved as high a mark as this before.
Eleanor loves her singing lessons, and she's just started her music GCSE course at school in which she also gets to sing. I like that through her music lessons, both singing and her school lesson, she gets to learn lots of songs which she wouldn't otherwise know. At the moment she's learning blues at school, and she learns a lot of folk songs and musical theatre songs in her singing lesson.
Grade four beckons, so Eleanor is in the process of choosing which songs she's going to sing for that. We're all very proud of her.
