I'm very pleased to announce that one of our young pupils achieved a distinction in his Grade 1 drum kit exam with Trinity Guildhall this past week! Oliver is currently a P5 student and has already climbed the first rung on the graded exams ladder.

Oliver has been practising hard for his exam these past few months. His exam included two tricky pieces of music - one played along to a backing track and one solo. He also had to prepare a rudimental study involving single and double stroke rolls and paradiddles. His aural skills were also tested with identifying time signatures and changes in drum kit rhythms and patterns. And to top it off he also had a sight-reading test to complete. 

Oliver and his parents are over the moon with this result, as am I! Congratulations to Oliver and here's to the next great result...
