A young working-class pianist fights the British systemmain
Scott Caizley grew up on a council estate in Rothwell, the son of a labourer.
He became obsessed with the idea of becoming a concert pianist.
But when he got into Trinity Laban music college in London, Scott floundered. ‘I was struggling. I felt as though I was not ‘fitting in’. I felt like a fish out of water. My accent was funny, my schooling was not great, I was not as cultured or as well-travelled as the other students and I did not make one single friend whilst at the music college…’

Scott is now trying for Cambridge, but he needs our help to get there.
