A cello player has become BBC Young Musician 2012, with her music instrument skills bagging her £2,000, the BBC has reported.<br /> <br /> Laura van der Heijden's first instrument was apparently a recorder: by ten she had achieved Grade 8 in cello and piano and still only 15 she gained her latest musical achievement last Sunday.<br /> <br /> Piano and recorder players took part in the contest's final alongside the Sussex-born teen, currently taught by Leonid Gorokhov. Yuanfan Yang performed on the former instrument, while Charlotte Barbour-Condini took on music using the latter.<br /> <br /> Shown on TV, Van der Heijden's victory came the day after several music instrument players and singers took to the stage for the final edition of this year's Britain's Got Talent competition.<br /> <br /> Though it has been running for several years now, BGT can't claim to have quite shown Young Musician's longevity yet, with the latter competition first heard in action more than three decades ago, according to the BBC.<br /> <br /> Published by KT.<img alt="ADNFCR-2133-ID-801363931-ADNFCR" src="http://feeds.directnews.co.uk/feedtrack/justcopyright.gif?feedid=2133&itemid=801363931" />
