Derek Paravacini visits The Castle School

Pupils and staff were very excited last week when the renowned pianist Derek Paravicini visited us. Derek is completely blind and has autism and severe learning difficulties. He has proven that this is no barrier at all and he is an amazing musician. He delighted all at The Castle by playing a very varied array of tunes and taking requests - Derek can play pretty much anything from memory and is also able to play tune after hearing it only once. Here are some pictures of the day:
