We both like music a lot.
We have a keyboard, which was bought for us as a present, and Jack writes his own stuff on this now, but we are both also learning strings.
Ben started on the violin but has switched to playing the viola, and Jack is learning the cello. Ben has lessons from Jackie.
He has a lesson every week, and has now taken Grade 4 of the Royal Schools of Music violin examinations. He has also played in quite a few concerts.
Jack has cello lessons with a lady called Sue, who is an orchestral cellist and a very good teacher. The cello is quarter size and Jack's been playing for almost 2 years now. He passed Grade 2 of the Royal Schools of Music violin examinations with a Distinction, which is the top grade you can get. You can see him front right in the picture below at his concert last Christmas.
The streamed video of Jack was filmed in July 2001 at a concert at his teacher's house.
