Congratulations! and yes boast all you want. I'd be stopping people in the street smile

It's not like winning the pools. It means she worked very hard and is something to be very proud of.

Nothing wrong with boasting about that! You must be so proud, and ditto to the comment about stopping people in the street.

I got a first - it's one of my happiest memories. I phoned my mum and she had to put the phone down on me because she was sobbing. Then my dad rang back, and couldn't talk for crying either smile.

Be very proud of her. They absolutely do not come easy.

Congratulations to your DD.

I got a first too and I was one of 3 in my large cohort.

It's not easy to do and it means she worked hard and achieved consistently, all the way through.

You should be very proud of her, as she should of herself.

What is she planning on doing next?

You most certainly can boast, congratulations to your DD and to you, musicians need a fair bit of prodding in the early stageswink
