Doing grade 7 trombone this term!

I've only been playing for 4 years lol, trombone is definitely a natural instrument for me

 

And why is this topic dying?

The same can also be said about the 'music' topic.

Just got one of my Grade 8 trombone pieces.

 

It's 4 pages long...

 

To put it in comparison, my grade 7 pieces were no longer than about a page and a quarter.

Grade 8 is a killer, but worth it in the end!  What's the piece called?

Having done theory, I can easily say that the stuff you do in the book is nowhere near as hard as the questions asked on the papers. Just do lots of past papers and you will be fine.

 

I remember I found theory fairly stressful when practicing, etc. But when it got to the exam, I couldn't be any more relaxed. I then ended up with a distinction :lol:

 

A pass is about 66/100 I think so the standards of passing are quite low. The questions are basically the same each time except with different notes (and worlds for the song question, which is optional). So you'll be absolutely fine when you get to the exam.

Plus, the invidulators are very laid back.

Music is expression, not examination. Just so long as you enjoy it!

Unless y'know... You fancy joining the orchestra or want to become a session musician.
