One of the accredited ones-ten years of service-it's a system of battery hens going through a procedure that is supposed to produce quality musicians.
For which examining body, blueglasses, as a matter of interest?
I am an ex music examiner
The AP in the States?
Maybe the exam system for which you claim to be an ex-examiner was "supposed to produce quality musicians", but here in the UK, I think it's the combined efforts of a skilled teacher and a dedicated pupil which normally lead to a musician. The exam system merely tests the pupil at various stages along the way.
i DO not claim to be one, I was one! I examined for one of the accredited music exam boards in the UK! I am UK born and bred.
