Well, we have reached the end of our first term at Peebles Road. General opinion seems to be that it’s a big improvement – even though they can no longer play with the fridge magnets! The three new students also seem to be settling in well…
Within weeks of moving, we had our first visit from the Associated Board examiner. The new exam room seemed to work well, and eleven violin/viola students took their exams – all of them successfully! Very well done to all of them!
Special mention must be made of Emma, who was awarded a Distinction in her first exam, just a few months after she started playing!
Now that the exams are over, I am hoping to organise an informal concert to give all students a chance to perform. Details will be available in our newsletter, “Peebles Post”, as soon as they are available.
