Last month, a dozen students took examinations from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. The exams took place at a Special Visit, meaning that the examiner visited us here, at Peebles Road.
During the course of the morning, the examiner was treated to performances on recorder, violin and viola (as well as tests for Practical Musicianship) from candidates of all ages. The examiner was quite charming and put everyone at ease – everyone came out smiling and some admitted that they’d enjoyed themselves.
We had the results in less than a fortnight. Everyone had done really well, but special congratulations should go to Victoria and Lyn, who were both awarded Distinction marks in their first exams.
Since then, two more students have passed their Music Medal assessments to round off what has been a very successful term!
