Passing Piano Exams

The gals' piano results were out today. RA got a pass (110) while RL got a pass with Merit (122). RA was feeling a bit disappointed and cried a bit. I had to reassure her that I am happy with a pass because Grade 3 exam is harder than Grade 1 and she had lesser time to prepare for it compared to Mei Mei.

Mei Mei had an extra 3 months to prepare for her exams due to the retest but RA with her CCA and Hw commitment did not have as much time to practise. Even RL was not very happy with her Merit though. She was hoping to pass with Distinction. But since she made some careless mistakes, a Merit was a pleasant surprise for me.

To reward both of them as I promised before, we brought them shopping. RA chose a Smiggle pencil case. Something she asked since Term 1 but I didn't buy it for her as there were other pencil cases at home. She also got a pen and a ruler. RL chose the Shopkins Gumball machine which she had been eyeing for months.

Glad the exams are over. For now, I got the tcr to teach them fun songs like Kiss the Rain by Yiruma. We will take a short break before starting the exam songs. Hopefully they can skip grade to Grade 3 and Grade 5 respectively. I also told them if they are not happy with their results, they got to work harder and practise more next time. :)
