‘Proud Mom’: Myleene Klass has revealed that her talented daughter is pursuing her passion for music by earning her cello diploma
‘Proud Mom alert. Today @pianos_our_forte passed her cello diploma exam. (She kills me if I say this, but for context, Musos usually do their 8th grade at 16 (she has 2 at 12) and diplomas at 17/18, she does two at 14),” Myleene wrote alongside Snapshots of her and Ava outside the exam room.
“She’s phenomenally dedicated, super talented and conscientious, but ultimately this girl is nice.”
“I couldn’t be prouder of her and cheering her on, driving her to her exams and sobbing while I sit in the waiting room and listen to her play her heart out is nothing short of a privilege,” he said the proud mother.
Myleene then revealed that “Ava is coming to @royalacademyofmusic in a few weeks and we’ll be there to cheer her on every step of the way.”

“To the kids out there giving up their time in practice rooms, feeling the frustration, the worry of extra exams, the blisters on their fingers and the moms carrying them around, I get you.”
“You are part of the best tribe ever. They took the harder route, but we’re here for the marathon, not the sprint. Muso’s Rock.”
