Listen to our talented ex Student live on Radio 2

'', ''

One of our earliest pupil's, Emily Dunn is still enjoying music 16 years on, and with breathtaking talent has just performed live on Radio 2.

Andrea Lee used to teach Emily back in 1996, and occasionally babysat her. She had not seen her for some years and was blown away when she came across her again in a local pantomime. Emily was not playing the main part, but her dancing, acting and singing ability set her apart as a real star in the making. Being intrigued, and not recognising her, Andrea looked her up in the programme; she was surprised and delighted to discover that this talented actress was in fact Emily, who she had known so well in her early years.

Now, further along her journey Emily is coming to the end of her studies at the Arts Educational School in London and was been chosen to sing both a solo and a duet on Radio 2 on 19th October 2012. Emily's duet performance is at around 36 minutes into the programme and her solo performance is at 1 hr 25. They are absolutely beautiful so do have a listen by clicking here.

"It is exciting to remember a little girl who was always singing and dancing in her early years, and also to see where the combination of that talent and the commitment of herself and her parents have brought her" said Andrea. "I hope reading about Emily will inspire our current Music Train families".

Emily's family have kindly allowed us to post an amateur video of Emily singing so that you can enjoy watching her sing one of the songs she sang on Radio 2.
