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!

June 2017 Summer Stories Student Concert

We enjoyed a student concert presented by 18 of Clara's students in June.  Friends and family attended our cosy concert at Chinese Swimming Club. 

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
