    I took up the violin just over a year ago - not any grade in it, but insanely decided to take GCSE music which requires Grade 4-standard performances :rolleyes: I love it though - it's such an incredibly versatile instrument and I wish I had taken it up sooner instead of persisting with piano for five years!

    I played the bassoon to grade 4, then gave up cos I wasn't good enough to do a level music and so would have to pay 4 lessons.

    I now have a guitar which I can't play!

    Go on musicnotes.com, you can download music in a variety of keys for a small price, it's my secret weapon in jazz singing!

    No, I looked at that one but i decided to do one at guildhall schools of music GSM(P) i think. You only need to do a 25 min performance with varied repetoire. You dont need all the rubbish that comes with the ABRSM exams and they are equivilent!

    im doing the ATCL (trinity's version) you only have to play 4 choices(though admitedly some of the choices contain a few movements or pices within them) - no sight reading or anything; and it seems to be fairly prestigious, on level with guildhall and ABRSM any way. in fact i dont think any particular one is better - they are just all slightly different.
