Sharing Achievement – ABRSM Cello Exams

Just to share some news in music of four pupils sitting their ABRSM exams on cello today:

Elena Morgan – Grade 4
Maya MacDonald – Grade 4
Eve Sneddon – Grade 4
Calum Rafferty – Grade 3

To put this into context, the minimum standard requirement for Nat 5 is Grade 3 and higher is Grade 4 so these pupils are progressing at an exceptional rate for their ages! ABRSM results also accumulate tariff points which can be used to support UCAS applications in the future. All these pupils are supported by our cello teacher Tracy Dance.

Best of luck to you all!
