"When I first came Settlement Music School, becoming a professional musician seemed like something from my wildest dreams. But now, six years later, I'm applying to conservatories for a degree in piano performance! Through all the guidance, encouragement, and wonderful opportunities I have received at Settlement, I've gained the confidence to follow my dreams." Ellie Taylor, Settlement student
