James, who also sings in the school's chapel choir, said: "I feel privileged to have been selected for the NYBBGB. I have been playing the trombone for nine years and I have had a lot of help from family members and teachers to get to this stage."
Lisa, who has played the piano since she was four-years-old and crowned the school's senior young musician of the year, said: "I am delighted to have achieved a distinction.
"When I play the piano, I feel like my mind is inside another music world. This is the moment I enjoy the most."
