About Orlandicus

I am a Music Scholar student in the Upper Sixth Form at Colfes Secondary School in the UK.

I am currently working on my piano and violin Diploma, having already achieved ABRSM Grade 8 in both Piano and Violin. I am also working on French Horn Grade 6.

Before my voice broke, I sang at the finals of the BBC Junior Choir of the Year competition in Manchester and at the Royal Festival Hall in London winning.

I record my compositions in Logic Pro X, Garageband (not anymore), Soundtrap and Reason 10.
