Lmm Learning Alumni Focus: Aseye Olympio
LMM Learning graduate, Aseye Olympio, is now in year 9 at Kingsdale Foundation School, where she is studying under a full music scholarship. At age 13, she is an accomplished young violinist and former AYM Award winner. Aseye attends Royal College of Music’s Junior Department every Saturday and is currently busy practising for her Grade 8 ABRSM exam in Spring 2016. During her time at Ashmole Primary school Aseye was an active participant of the LMM Learning programme. We caught up with Aseye to find out more about what she is up to now and what being a musician means to her.
“My favourite thing about music and being a musician is the fact that you get to meet and play with new people. I really enjoy playing pieces because they mean a lot to me. In my school I am involved in the school orchestra and in quartets. Out of school I am involved in Chineke! Youth Orchestra which is a diverse orchestra. I am also a part of the National Children’s Orchestra of Great Britain. At the moment my favourite piece to play is Cappriccio Espagnol (Rimsky-Korsakov) because it’s a piece that has so much character. I am also particularly proud of achieving a Distinction in my Grade 5 Music Theory. In my memory of my time with London Music Masters I really enjoyed playing new pieces and I had an amazing experience with all my music teachers. In the future I would like to see myself as a professional violinist who always achieves what I want to do.”
London Music Masters wishes Aseye all the very best in her future musical ambitions. Now a LMM Learning alumni, Aseye still receives opportunities to broaden her musical experiences through London Music Masters, along with all other children who graduate from LMM Learning.
