While he was with us, Derek put together the Putney High School Blues based around 4 randomly chosen notes on the piano.
“Anyone can achieve great things if they practise,” Mr Okelford explained. “And it takes roughly 10,000 hours of practising if you want to be really good at something”.
Derek is not just gifted, he has practised the piano for three hours a day, for over 10 years.
Inspiration to us all!
