Music Examination Success

Music Examination Success
Karen Smith

Canfordians are celebrating excellent success in recent external ABRSM music examinations, with 80% of all entries awarded a distinction or merit, including seven distinctions at Grade 8 level.  Particular congratulations go to Forest who achieved a distinction on the piano at Diploma level, which is beyond Grade 8 standard.

Music continues to thrive at Canford, as demonstrated by the range of instruments examined spanning brass, strings, percussion and woodwind plus eight in Singing.  Christopher Sparkhall, Director of Music, commented:

“I am delighted for all our musicians on achieving such wonderful examination results.  Taking music to the highest levels requires dedication and a great deal of hard work and they should all be very proud of these fine rewards for their efforts undertaken alongside their many other school commitments.”
