    I read it in some book - can't remember where. I'll dig it out sometime but I don't think he liked the flute that much, well certainly not compared to the clarinet anyway.

    I thought that quote was referring to one clarinet and two clarinets. Wrong??

    I read it in some tiny book called "quotes for music lover". Exactly one square inch in size, tiny.

    Hey people, have any of you just recently done a grade. I did one sometime like June 29th, and they said i would get the grade result in 1-2 weeks! It's been over a month now, and i still haven't got the result? :confused:
    I did grade 5, but i've never done one before, just got put straight in for it, which is bizarre.Does anyone know how long they take to come through?

    Thanks for any help G.k

    Results usually take over a month to come through. Especially if you took your exam through your school. How do you think you did in your exam?

    I play the flute! I have done grade six. Not playing much at the moment though - I am concentrating more on the piano.

    At the risk of sounding a proper geek! i play the flute and also went to see the magic flute at Glyndebourne
    (amazing world famous opera house if you havnt heard of it!)

    also saw Carmen and rodelina all so good but Carmen by far the best made me cry! xPx
