Music Marvels

The past year saw two cohorts of St Christopher’s musicians being entered for ABRSM Music Examinations. Our students performed exceptionally well with more Distinctions than ever before. Particularly noteworthy results were Bassam Alalawi and Raoul D’Souza’s Distinctions at Grade 8 on Saxophone, Rex Tinsley’s incredibly high scoring Grade 1 Trumpet Distinction, Sam Hoar and Imaan Chowdhury achieving Distinction at Grade 7 on Trumpet and Piano respectively and students who achieved remarkable success on more than one instrument ; William Caley’s triple success on Piano and Saxophone, including two separate Distinctions on the latter instrument, Elizabeth Caley who was awarded Distinctions on both Oboe and Guitar, Sui Sen Ho’s success of Guitar and Saxophone, Zara Salaria’s triple achievement on Piano and two levels on Violin, Danielle Wilkinson’s double success on Piano and Guitar, Ayleen Aamir’s two separate violin successes and Aarti Rangarajan who achieved Distinction on Violin and Merit on French Horn.

In addition we are proud of St Christopher’s students who entered for examination independently and who passed with Distinction. Amongst those in this category were Zahra Ahmed (Grade 1, Piano), George Axtell who achieved Distinction on two instruments (Piano and Cello (under St Christopher’s aegis)), Zoe Lascelles-Lloyd (Grade 1, Piano), Charlotte Axtell (Grade 1, Piano), Natalie Myatt (Grade 3, Singing), Crea Butlin (Grade 3, Piano), Spike Thomas (Grade 3, Violin), Faye Weaver (Grade 3, Singing) Francesca Giovanetti (Grade 4, Singing) and Rajat Chowdhury (Grade 4, Piano)

Music Examinations are unique insofar as it involves a live confrontation with an examiner. The resilience and character required make all of our student’s achievements all the more worthy.
