It's a tense time waiting for drum kit exam results. Even though I never put anyone forward for an exam unless I think they are going to pass, there's always the fear of things not going to plan on the day. This summer I put five students forward for exams. For some of them it was the culmination of a year or more's work, for others it was a hard push over 6 months. I'm very pleased to say that everyone passed. With the amount of preparation and hard work everyone put in, I'm not surprised but it's always a relief.

Simon Dean - Grade 7 - Merit
Dave Snutch - Grade 5 - Distinction
Max Read - Grade 2 - Merit
Alex Haigh - Grade 2 - Pass
Sol Stone - Grade 1 - Merit

Congratulations everyone!
