Beachborough Music exams

Music exams

Over 20 children took music exams at the end of the Spring Term on a wide range of instruments from preparatory tests to Grade V. All the children passed, many achieving merits and distinctions and are to be warmly congratulated. Emily passed her Grade V theory paper, a particularly tricky exam in which pupils need an in depth knowledge of music theory. Luke; Luka; Samuel and Emma achieved the highest accolade of distinction. Particular mention should be given to Samuel, who achieved a distinction in two instruments – Grade 1 Bassoon and Grade 2 Treble Recorder and to Emma who achieved a distinction in her Advanced Certificate in Recorder, the grade following Grade 8 – an amazing accomplishment at the age of thirteen. Well done to all! Report by Judith Dunkley
