Joseph Martin, Year 13 and Deputy Head Boy, recently sat his Grade 8 singing exam with the Trinity College of Music.
For this exam Joe had to perform four pieces from a set list as well as technical exercises and sight reading.
Marked out of 100, Joe achieved a mark of 99, putting his result as one of the highest achievers in the country.
The examiner’s report commented:
‘’Phrases were musically shaped … Tone and intonation were secure …. An enjoyable performance … Excellent presentation posture and focus was maintained throughout.”
“You made me want to listen and took ownership of your performance. Wonderful musical singing worthy of this very high distinction mark.’’
Congratulations on a well deserved result, Joe!
