Young trombonist Daisy Hogan (pictured) hit all the right notes at the Rotary Club Young Musician of the Year competition, where she won the award for Most Promising Instrumentalist.

Nine-year-old Daisy, a pupil at top independent school Burgess Hill Girls, won the judges’ vote with her performance of trombone classic The Parson’s Nose.

Daisy was one of a number of young musicians from Girls who took part in the competition.

Burgess Hill Girls Head Liz Laybourn said: ‘This win by Daisy reflects the importance we attach to girls’ creative endeavours in, and beyond, the classroom. She is an exceptionally talented trombonist, and I feel sure she’ll go far in music.’
