    Got my Alto Sax Grade 6 on Monday.

    The pieces and scales are ok, just hopefully I don't screw up the sightreading and aural too much and become the first ever student to fail my teacher.

    Good luck, with the aural I just make educated guesses and hope to pick up marks on the other bits. Can't sing for ****

    Ha yes- I'm scared to be the only student to fail my teacher. They teach the best of the best, and every time I turn up for a lesson I feel like SUCH failure.


    sight-reading is a *****!

    good luck any way!

    Singing well.
    Piano not. Despite actually doing singing, I can't sing back a tune...
    And My hands started shaking for the last piece, as well as forgetting an octave for every single scale...
    YAY!
