From a very early stage in my piano teaching I have offered the opportunity to students to present work for examination. I now have accumulated examination successes in their thousands covering all levels from the initial entry levels through to advanced diploma standard in both performance and theory of music.  I present roughly over one hundred and fifty students for examination every year and the pass rate is outstanding.

ABRSM examinations are presented in Halifax and Bradford

Trinity Guildhall examinations are presented in Batley

London College of Music  examinations are presented in Bingley


I enclose below actual examiners comments made on recent examination students.

“A commanding technical grasp of this complicated movement – the tone of the instrument was exploited with both sensitivity and authority. The performance had flair”

Matthew – Distinction. DIPLCM - Manchester

“A characterful performance – the idiom was approached in a most stylish manner and there were many impressive qualities in this presentation”

Andrew – Distinction. Grade 8 ABRSM - Halifax

“A gentle approach – a fine tone from the keyboard and a suitable speed for this Valse. The note and rhythmic accuracy was excellent”

Victoria – Distinction. Grade 5 ABRSM - Halifax

Nimble and Buoyant at the outset – this was a good bold account – full of character with a finely crafted ending”

Christopher – Distinction Grade 1 ABRSM - Bradford

"A thoroughly prepared examination.  Congratulations!"

Joshua - Distinction. Grade 1 ABRSM - Halifax


The examinations I offer are both wide and varied.  I am thoroughly experienced in all UK examination bodies:

Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music - Piano and Theory

Trinity Guildhall - Keyboard

London College of Music - Piano and Keyboard

I would discuss all options and opportunities with you as a matter of course.
