Good luck ejw21. I am sure you will do very well.

Thanks! The exam flew by! Examiner was nice though I was a bit more nervous than I thought I might be! Brains are weird - I can perform in front of a roomful of people pretty well, but one person on their own who is 'an examiner'?!? 3 pieces went between OK and rather well (definitely got into my stride by the 3rd piece) but the last piece less so, 2 (separate) bars completely went awry. I went for the easiest/best/then the rest/most difficult order of pieces - used to write essay based exams in this order back in the day - and I think it worked. Apparently anything from 2 days to 2 weeks for the results.

Yesterday in way of light relief my ukulele club were busking Christmas songs in our local supermarket. Raised almost £250 for charity :)

 

 

Sounds like a successful couple of days of music-making. Fingers crossed that you get the result you want :)

Got my grade 8 flute results today... 120, so exactly a merit!!

Feeling stunned, especially as I thought my A piece was awful and actually got a good mark for it. My aural and scales weren’t great as expected, but great marks for my pieces which is all I care about. I enjoy playing music not scales (I know they’re important and have a purpose, just don’t enjoy them at all!)!

Feeling rather proud of myself though!

 

Excellent news, well done!
