Recent trips to Malaysia

A privelege to be on the panel for this prestigious competition. Two days of hard work selecting from the most talented pianists from across the country - and then a birthday tea to finish!

A lovely letter arrived from ABRSM, with a cheque for £200 awarded to a pupil for his mark of 146 in Grade 8 piano. This priize is given to the candidate with the highest mark at Grade 8 in the UK during each exam session.
