Violin player Nicola Benedetti has praised the Big Noise project - a scheme which encourages children to learn how to play musical instruments.

A total of 350 children who joined the Big Noise orchestra performed for the first time in full together in Stirling, with Benedetti on hand to witness the show.

She told the Herald that the musical standard had been very impressive, especially considering a few of the students only picked up their instruments for the first time a week ago.

"I thought the orchestra sounded absolutely great, it was very impressive," said the violinist.

"It's amazing how accomplished they were for their first practice together, with some pretty complex stuff."

Benedetti, who is now 23, first began playing the violin herself at the age of five.

Along with her professional music career, she is also an ambassador for Unicef, along with the likes of Jamie Cullum and Bjork.
