    Congrats!

    I used to play the clarinet when I was much younger (quit after grade 6) and I really thought I had failed my last exam too. The scales were awful and so was the sight reading.

    I only passed by like, 2 marks!

    I'm doing the 4th movement of the Saint-Saens Clarinet sonata, First movement of Macolm Arnold's Sonatina for clarinet and, erm, the study with lots of sharps in the green book......maybe number 76. I obviously don't pay enough attention. The mozart was tempting but I felt that it's so well known that everyone has their own interpretation of how it should sound so the performance would be hard to pull off. x

    I have the notes written above on any that confuse me- which is quite a few! It's pretty ok once you know it. The Saint-Saens is really long but worth it x
