Classical & Jazz

Grade: Initial

Instrument: Piano

Piece 1 (out of 22): Allegretto

The fingerwork and tone were well-controlled at the start, with some admirable definition and musically shaped contrasts. The elegant mood was effectively communicated, on the whole, at this brisk tempo, with an impressively maintained pulse, and only slightly accented tone.

Marks: 7/5/7=19

Piece 2 (out of 22): March Time

The opening crotchet rhythm was strong, with some well-defined articulation and excellent coordination. The tone was slightly strident and accented at times, but there was a generally assured sense of the marching mood, in this highly accurate account.

Marks: 7/6/7=20

Piece 3 (out of 22): Into the Distance

The opening chords were well-coordinated, with some effective musical detail and hints of the opening gently flowing style. This was a highly fluent account, and although there were a few rhythmic slips and some tonal blemishes, this nonetheless flowed.

Marks: 6/5/6=17

Technical Work (out of 14): Scales, Broken triads and Exercises

The Exercises were played accurately, with a strong pulse and much of the characters and styles. Most articulation detail was observed, with a good legato tone and some skillfully controlled, and only occasionally slightly accented, tone. The scales were played with a largely even tone and rhythm, and the broken triads were well-shaped, though excessive wrist movement occasionally affected the tone.

Mark: 13

Performance Delivery and Focus (out of 10)

The performance was delivered with excellent focus overall, with some smooth and well-organised transitions and a confident manner.

Mark: 10

Musical Awareness (out of 10)

The styles were differentiated for the most part, with excellent attention to musical detail, and a gradually developing tonal awareness. There was evidence of a commanding musical voice and impressive musical awareness and consistency throughout the pieces and exercises.
