Do you do mock exams?
Yes, I do!
This is one of the most often asked questions I get so today I wanted to speak about it & why I offer mock examinations.
As an RCM Examinar with many years of professional examination experience I wholeheartedly believe in the value of mock exams for piano students to get higher examination marks.
Because they work!
With mock exams, students routinly get higher piano grades and have the trophys to prove it!
Unfortunately, there are those parents are unsure about a mock exam and skip this step with their children as they do not feel it is necessary. (Of course, it is usually the parents who have never taken a piano lesson in their life!)
Skipping the mock exam misses out on a vital part of preparation, which is putting yourself in the frame of mind that you will experience on exam day.
Why You Should Do a Mock Exam:
Mock exams can help you find gaps in your understanding & identify your weaknesses.
Mock exams provide a really good opportunity for you to get some feedback from an examiner in the same style as you will receive on the actual exam day.
Mocks highlight any problems that you might have with exams, and give you the chance to overcome them in time for the real thing.
As much as you might dread the thought of mock exams, they are the best thing you can do to help you get ready for the real thing!
A mock exam will help you feel more relaxed on the day (yes, really!) & it will help you look forward to exam day.
It’s always a good feeling when our piano students come out of the exam smiling because they know they have done their best and they have been well prepared for the exam!
