Exams are an important part of understanding the ‘art of performance’. They also serve as a useful yardstick by which students can measure there progress. It is important however to understand that examinations are a PART of the process, and we NEVER allow students to just study for exams without gaining a well rounded music education.
Exams are always taken in consultation with the student and or parent and details of which pieces I recommend to study can be found in the links below.
Please note at this moment in time I only offer to tutor students for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. I have a 100% pass rate with this exam board over twelve years of teaching and we also have some of the best marks in the UK for each entry.
Our grade eight exams have an astonishing 100% distinction rate!
