I posted on here a few months ago about considering taking piano grades. I started learning piano around march of 2011 (at age 21). I had regretted not learning as a child so took it up late. I decided to give grades a go (by way of having something to aim for!). My teacher suggested that I had progressed well enough to start at grade 4, so I began preparing for the exam in April (2012).
Well, I took the exam on wednesday (11th July). I think it went ok, however all I can seem to remember about the exam is the mistakes I made! and am really not sure whether I have done enough to pass. So, based on the following, how would it appear I have done? enough for a pass?
Scales and Arpeggios - I stumbled a little playing F minor scale, hands together. My mind went completely blank playing D sharp major scale, right hand only and I really messed that one up! all other scales and arpeggios were fine.... I think!
Pieces - I think I played all 3 quite well. My B piece (alone at sunset) was a little troublesome in that I didn't get some of the left hand notes to sound at times. The piano I was playing on had alot heavier touch than I am used to. Otherwise, the other 2 pieces, I think, were ok.
Sight reading - This was by a long way the weakest part of the test for me. Considering this though, I think I did ok. I played it through ok, however I did stutter at times, but I think, in the main, I got the rythm and notes mainly correct.
Aural tests - Again, I think I did ok. Both singing parts were fine, and I didn't have a problem clapping along to a rhythm. However, when it came to answering question about a previously played passage of music, my mind again went blank and I just couldn't think of anything to say! so, to be honest, that part of the aural test can be written off for any marks I think!
Based on that, how would you guess I have done?
Thanks in advance
