During this difficult time for us all, I am still offering piano and violin lessons, but moving online to Skype. Please contact me for further details and help with setting-up. For those of us having to stay at home, let's use this time wisely and productively - this is a great time to learn an instrument!
Firstly, congratulations to Matthew Rees who has been awarded the Barton Grange Trophy for Music for the year 2018. Matthew is 14 and passed his Grade 6 Piano exam with Merit last summer. He has made really good progress and is now working towards Grade 7. Well done!
I also wanted to mention two other students who worked extremely hard last year and gained exceptional results –
Firstly, Emma Coffey who passed her Grade 8 Violin exam (having passed Grade 8 Piano with Merit previously in 2017) and also Abi Brownrigg, who passed Grade 8 Piano with Merit in December. Two exceptionally dedicated and deserving students who deserved their excellent results!
Of course, passing exams isn’t ALL that learning an instrument is about – but for many it is a real sense of achievement when that hard won certificate in received. It often means an awful lot and rewards all the hard work and consistent dedication – so I am delighted for students when they gain their qualifications.
