Today I had my first violin exam! I did my Grade 2 Practical.It was different from a piano exam because I needed an accompanist for my repertoire songs.
I didn't have to do sight reading for this one, so that was different too. For higher grades they do sight reading, but not Grade 2.
We reached the examination centre really early so we went to McDonald's to wait. Dad got a coffee but I didn't want anything.
We went back to the exam centre and met with Christy - my accompanist.
The examiner was friendly and he wasn't scary at all.
My old violin was getting a bit too small for me, but my teacher said we should wait until after the exam to move to the next size. So, right after my exam Dad and I went to the store to buy my very own violin! It's the first one that I can call my own! No more renting for me. :-)
Here's a picture of MY violin.
