I have just got in from work and my son had taken a message from my piano teacher, that I have passed grade 1.
That is all I know at the moment. I am waiting for her to ring me back and let me know the score etc.
I am relieved I have passed after the jelly fingers episode, but I am really curious to see the comments etc.
I have no idea... still waiting for her to call back... aaarrrgh!
Mustn't get my hopes up though, remember what I told you about the nerves getting hold of me. Will be thankful I have passed and might pee myself (sorry, out of order I know!!!) if I got anything better!!!
Hope they don't ban me from this sight... I am just so happy!
Have you put in for your exam yet? They take a while to come through.
This is all so exciting... we can be the grade 1 gang... yes nutter alert!!! Personality doesn't really show in text does it. Imagine a very bouncy person, with a grin you might want to slap if you weren't in such a happy mood when you saw it!!! Ha ha ha!
I couldn't wait any longer, I ran around to my teacher's house to get the paperwork.
sight reading 18/21
124/150 MERIT... oh my god!!!!!! what could I have got if I hadn't been a jibbering wreck... deep breaths... and relax.
I can't read half of his writing (must be a doctor for his day job!) so will have to get my teacher to tell me what it says tomorrow night when I have my next lesson.
Once again, thanks for the support Dave and co!
Thanks everyone... you know how to make a girl feel special!!!
The aural bit; not necessarily in this order but
they play a short piece and ask a couple of questions re staccato/legato or piano/forte and where in the piece did it change etc
they play some notes, you la la echo back, think I did 3 lots but it's a bit of a blur
they play a couple of bars, twice, but the second time there is a difference, you say what changed
they play a piece and you clap along the time, then say what it was eg 3 beats
Thanks again and stay in touch!
