2nd ABRSM Grading on 9th OMG again !!!!!!!!!

Post by StuartAU » 04 Jul 2009, 13:28

Ok, i promised to keep you all informed, Next Thursday Morning 9th July is D-day
My Grade 2 ABRSM exam, scored about 130 in Mock.

I have uploaded the vids of 3 pieces and Contrarymotion C & E Maj on the Performance and Recital Forum for you all to listen to.

Also a bit of the Trieste which i won't be using, some of them i clipped too much off the beginning and accidentally deleted it so it dont start right at the beginning.

That' good that you're practice tests with your teacher are bringing you easily into the distinction category!

Are you feeling confident?

I wouldn't say easily lol...
The week prior i did sort of a mock but just run through Oral pieces scales, arpeggios and she said i had nailed it!
Last week she decided to "Record" it, as soon as i knew that i went to pieces..
I had totally forgotten the G Minor scale, messed up arpegios & CMajcontrymotion which i have done 1000 times with my eyes closed! and i got mazurka wrong LOL...

I think ill feel better this time around, wish it was the same person Mr Virgo but its someone else a lady Miss Helen Duffy.
It's in the same place around the same time.
I'm going to try to get nervous early in the morning so to use a lot of my adrenelin up LOL..
Maybe go for a jog?
