I was in Gamlins' music store in Cardiff on Friday and I inadvertantly stumbled on an ABRSM exam waiting room, so it just reminded me it was 'that time of the year' once again.
Hello Dave, hello Gill, I've missed you both. Great to hear from you again.
edit PS. Cutlet always plays better on a heavier action piano for some reason. Anyway, she was given the choice of instruments when she went into the exam room and told me "The grand piano was a lovely black and the sun coming in the window was shining off it, so I chose it to play". I just love that - soppy old thing that I am. Somehow, that quote will always move me
