The last little bit of agony is being squeezed out of Perran today – it is his final saxophone exam. Not only has nearly everybody else finished: to add insult to injury, the ordeal takes place on a Saturday. His pieces are shaping up nicely although I only really understood some of them when I heard them accompanied by the piano for the first time last week (thank you so much to Mrs Paul for finding us a wonderful accompanist).
Once a young musician leaves school, it becomes much harder to engage in the “grades” structure, so this is probably his best shot at getting grade 8. Hang on in there for one more day, Perran.
