Of the 110 pianists who entered the 2014 BBC Young Musician competition just 30 now remain. Two of these are John’s pupils – Ning Hui See, who is a second year undergraduate pupil at the Royal College of Music, and Nurry Lee who is in her final year at Wells Cathedral School. Earlier this year Ning was a prize-winner in the European Piano Teachers’ competition and Nurry was one of the two winners of the WCS concerto competition. The BBC semi-finals will be held in Cardiff in December. Good luck to both!
