Taking an Exam
Taking a music exam can be a great way to motivate yourself to achieve your next goals in music performance.
Students can choose to take practical performance exams in piano, guitar, bass and ukulele. We also train pupils to pass written exams in music theory.
By taking an exam you could:
- Develop your skills
- Expand and deepen your musical knowledge
- Build a foundation for further musical study
- Grow in confidence and gain valuable performance experience
- Gain a qualification
Here at Heron Music Tuition we can help you gain grades in your musical instrument.
The exam experience
Sitting an exam can be a nerve wracking experience, but we’re here to make sure you’re prepared and confident.
Examiners want to hear you playing your best and showing what technical and artistic skill you have developed in your lessons. They will give you every opportunity to show your talents to the best of your ability.
Learning to perform is a musical skill in and of itself and we will give you lots of help to make sure that you’re equipped with strategies to make the exam experience a positive one.
We want you to feel good about exams and pass them well, so our policy is to only enter our students once they are likely to succeed. We never rush our pupils into exams.
