1999 - ​Scott Foster

Scott Foster played the marimba to take his Young Musician title in 1999. He studied at the Royal College of Music and then  taught and performed in London as a freelance percussionist before returning to Northern Ireland last year. A London highlight was participation in a theatrical percussion show called Noise Ensemble which took him to Russia, Korea, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Portugal, and Cyprus – and even to the Ulster Hall for its re-opening. Back in Northern Ireland he has been teaching piano and guitar; doing a bit of instrumental work with a number of schools; and trying his hand on jazz piano in a County Down restaurant.
