I had my Grade 4 piano exam today.
This morning, I woke up early and got ready to go to the RCM's Telus Centre. I love that building! They have the coolest, old instruments displayed there. The bistro is nice too.
Dad and I reached early for the exam and we waited together for a while. (Mom gets too nervous when I have exams so she didn't come.) I had to wait by myself outside the examination room for a bit too - that was boring.
I had 'butterflies' in my tummy.
The examiner was really nice. I don't know her name though. I did the scales first. I only remember doing A major even though I know I did more than that.
Then I played my studies. Study in Bb Major was OK but I had a problem with Avalanche. I thought I messed up on the last crescendo of Avalanche and I asked to start over. The examiner said I could from the second half. That was really nice of her and it helped me to relax a bit.
I think my repertoire songs were good. For List C, I did Schumann's Wild Horseman.
Of course my ear test was really good. Identifying the intervals is my favourite part of the exam. :-)
I'll let you know my exam results when I get them.
For now, it's time to just have some fun!
I'm going to play.....
