High scores in exams reflect a fine level of playing achieved by the students and rewards them for the hard work put in.

- 96 marks Distinction in grade 5 theory

2017 ATCL Piano Diploma Results
Both ATCL candidates passed their diploma exams in May and June; one is a 14-year old boy and another a young piano teacher. Good marks a little short of distinction with full marks for presentation in one of the exams! It was such a joy watching the students blossom into young pianists who play beautifully from the heart. Warmest congratulations!

2016 ABRSM Exam Results
The August to September 2016 exam period was quite a remarkable one with 7 high grade students (6 students in grade 8) sitting for their ABRSM practical exams! I'm thankful for their excellent results:
- 4 distinctions (3 in grade 8 and 1 in grade 6)
- 3 merits (all 3 in grade 8)
That makes 57% distinctions and 43% merits with 100% achieving at least a merit. Praise God!
2015 ABRSM Exam Results
Most of my students don't take exams every year, many students
skipping grades when the standard is sufficiently
exceeded. Some complete grade 8 after only two to three exams, scoring
distinctions in grade 8.
With most students in higher grades,
- 78% of the students achieve merits and distinctions
- 33% achieve distinctions
- 45% achieve merits
