RJ Marks/Sheku Kanneh-Mason

Huge congratulations to my former pupil Sheku Kanneh-Mason for being named winner of BBC Young Musician Of The Year. I taught Sheku everything I know on the cello (which is NOTHING!) but I did teach him guitar for a little while. I remember teaching him Pass Out by Tiny Tempah but wisely he decided to go for Shostokovich’s Cello Concerto no 1 instead (which by a strange coincidence is actually one of my favourite classical pieces – you should check it out).

Something else to check out is the new single from Nottingham duo RJ Marks. Another former pupil Jake Buckley make a cameo appearance at 2:38!
