Grade 8

Today I took my grade 8 piano exam. My teacher Michael, hosts the exams in his studio, so as pupils we’re lucky to take our exams on a piano we’re familiar with. Most of those who played in the concert on Tuesday were taking exams today.

Hopefully it went well. I wasn’t thrilled with one piece (I lost my fingering) but was happy but the other two. I think sight-reading and aural tests went well. Even the scales and arpeggios went ok! I’m sure I’ve done enough to pass and hopefully more than that. So……

….goodbye grade 8

…..hello Diploma


  1. Grade 8! That for me is the stuff that dreams are made of and extra-reality!! Congratulations and best wishes for your diploma. And congratulations in equal measure to Michael….you’ll always remember him and his influence throughout your life of music.
