Today is a great day for me as I have just learned that I passed ABRSM Performance Grade 5 with Distinction. This was my first ever piano exam, after having stopped lessons 60 years ago without ever having sat an exam. My next interest is to hear how folk like my two pieces submitted in April's 'Transcribed' themed recital in this group. This goes live on the 15th.

I am in awe. I am 50 years on from when I first started, had a 40 year break, noodled around a bit, another break then got serious again in late 2017. Grade 5 pieces terrify me and it gets harder for me with ageing brain and finger/wrist joints.

Well done you!
