Huge congratulations to Harry for passing his Grade 8 recently – and now we start on the Diploma!!
ABRSM have just released a new type of performance exam. The exams still carry the same weight as the usual Graded Practical examinations, but these are purely Graded Performances. The difference is that students study four pieces of music, three from the usual graded syllabus and one a piece of their choice, and send in a video recording of the performance. For those who really struggle with scales, aural and sight reading tests or the exam environment, this could be seriously worth considering.
