After the holidays, I got back to my regular teaching schedule with hopes of seeing several music students succeed in passing a test. Weekly lessons led to some real, measurable progress and four students did complete an ASAPH exam.
Jordany passed exam #1 for reading music (lines and spaces). Steephenson and Herold both passed exam #1 for playing drums. Guillaume passed keyboard skills test #1. Wilcene came very close to passing exam #3 for solfege, and Jordany A. came very close to passing the keyboard skills exam #1.
ASAPH students who successly pass a test get their exam on the Wall of Honor. In a country where 50% is a passing score, ASAPH students need to score 90% in order to pass an exam. (Two or three errors, and you need to re-take the test.) I want my students to be able to teach what they were taught...to pass it on, as they say.
