Just back from my grade 4 exam....oh dear.
Scales keyboards - must have failed lets just say right notes in the wrong places, and not even the right notes for them scales.
Scales on pedals actually went really well
Pedal solo picked the harder one and went as good as it could have been
Then down hill again...
The three pieces that I actually love to play I made whopping mistakes BUT think I kept the pulse going
Aural was OK, sightreading not at all bad. I do know that when asked the time sig, I said it was 4 time knowing it was 2 time, put it down to mental fatigue.
I'm just so cross with myself as I wasn't that nervous before (and nerves are a really big problem with me) and I was looking forward to "sharing" my set pieces on a lovely instrument in a beautiful church. I know I couldn't have put more work into things as I was really wanting to get a good mark not just for me, but my tutor as well.
Mind you I will consider my self very fortunate if I scrape a pass now!
The only glimmer of light is the examiner said, after my appologies for putting her through it, was I had nothing to worry about........ fingers crossed.
