I just did my grade 4 today. I also had a really nice examiner but in the aural test where you have to sing back to them- it was really long eek.gif . I basically gave up with it. Apart from that it was great! I have done 4 other ABRSM grades, 1, 2 and 3 on the harp and grade 2 piano.

Hi Emily-Lou

Sounds like you are doing great! I am hoping to take grade 4 as my first exam in about a year. What pieces are you doing? I am planning on doing Scarborough Fair and the Bach prelude in C and and Alberti Study.

I haven't started working on the aural yet, sorry. They have changed it so much since I last did it for my flute exams that I'm sure it will be all different, and my singing exams were Trinity which is different again. But it isn't my favourite thing either! At least it has the least marks allocated of anything. I haven't looked at the sight reading either yet - I'm not sure about coping with that on the harp yet! I can read it ok but placing might be a major challenge on the go!

All the best, do let me know what you are playing and what harp you are using. I have a Triplett Signature lever harp with 36 strings at the moment. I might get a pedal harp one day.

Katherine.


Wow, I haven't been on here for a while!
I played O'er Sea To Skye, Sonatina In C, and a study by pozzoli that I can't remember the name of!
I have a moreley's Elysian Traditional 40 which is quite big by lever harp standards and I am getting a rental pedal harp next week! CAN'T WAIT!!!
