A student has won four music cups in the space of 24 hours.
Max Guida, who attends Kingshott School in Hitchin, won the awards at Bedford Music Festival.
The nine-year-old from Stevenage played solo piano pieces from memory, in the following categories: 20th Century, Baroque, Classical and Own Choice classes.
As a result of his high scores, Max was invited to play in the festival’s high achievers concert at Bedford Corn Exchange.
Max has since won a further two trophies at Kingshott School’s own piano competition adjudicated by international concert pianist Kathron Sturrock, who also gave a recital to students at the school in Stevenage Road.

Max’s piano teacher, Alison Eales, who is also director of music at Kingshott said: “We are very proud of Max who is proving to be a very fine and talented young musician.”
