    Oh Grade 7 was tough for me, I was doing my GCSEs at the same time I think.

    A piece-always the technical one-ickery bickery fingering and ornaments

    B piece-the one I liked the most, better structured but very expressive, pedalling (the best part of playing the piano) and long pieces!

    C piece-the wild card, choices could be amazing or terrible and anything in between, generally enjoyable and not too hard compared to dreaded A piece for me

    I dont do grades.

    They seem controlling, and reduce creativity, like an unnecessary factor that doesnt need to pressure me.

    *Its pushing down on me, and pushing down on you.* (stupid lyrics in ma head sry)




    Actually I would love to take grades, just hella poor to take em Im sure you understand! Deez exams are costlier than our membership to the EU.
    ( which is like £55million a day!)





    Actually (this is the truth FOR REAL sry I joke too much I know) I am grade 8, passed last year xD






    Actually...yeah no thats it the last one was true (you must be hella confused atm but hopefully at least mildly entertained)

    Haha, yeah I like B pieces the most, but really A pieces are Baroque/ Classical, B pieces are Romantic and C pieces are international/jazz/modern...
    Did you do the Bulgarian song for your C piece?

    Also scales though!!!!!!!!!! :puke:
