TOP concert pianist Hayley Elton played to youngsters at an award-winning day nursery.
Hayley, who has taught personalities including Victoria Beckham to play the piano, is taking part in the UK’s first ever classical music nursery tour.
She played to children at the Old School House Day Nursery in Stechworth, near Newmarket, as part of the tour supported by Yamaha Music.
Linda Barton-Pitt, nursery director, said: “We were so excited at being given the opportunity to host this event which highlighted the importance of music in supporting not only children’s all round developments, but also in helping to shape their skills in concentration, memory and listening.”
The visit also included a performance by 7-year-old Curtis Elton, who was the youngest person in Britain to pass his Grade 1 piano exam at the age of 4.
Parents and children at the nursery were shown how to play a simple tune in just five minutes.
