I had a lovely day out to Lancaster for some summer exams today – including accompanying my adult student Rosalind for her Grade 5 Violin exam. Here is a picture of her warming up on the roof of my studio before we set out. Rosalind came to me as a young adult student a few years ago, and as a beginner on the violin. Since then she has made great progress, passing Grade 4 with a very high Distinction mark last year – and she has also joined an orchestra.
Rosalind played pieces by Bach, Kreisler and Kodaly in her exam.
Let’s hope the sunny weather was a good omen!
