Today I had the great pleasure of presenting ABRSM Grade 1 Distinction certificates to my pupils Jordan and Keenan.

The two brothers both scored high marks in their exams.

Jordan played piece C3, The Egyptian Level, scoring maximum marks with examiner’s notes saying ‘Much excellent detail and range & dynamics. This was rhythmic and lyrical with an impressive and well committed character.’

Keenan also played piece C3, The Egyptian Level with the examiner’s notes saying ‘This was a positive performance with confident fingerwork… a pleasant well judged ending.’

Both boys scored well in the supporting Scales, Sight-reading and Aural tests.

I would like to thank both Jordan and Keenan for their hard work as we finalised their preparation in the lead-up to the exam and also their parents for having confidence in me to teach their sons.

Now, the hard work starts all over again as we prepare for Grade 2!
