Supporting students in Instrumental Exams

As many of you know, Ajarn Santi Saengthong is our Prem instrumental facilitator. He holds an LTCL recital degree with distinction in piano performance from Trinity College, London.

Ajarn Santi always makes sure that our instrumental students receive the best possible lessons. On the 25 August 2016, he attended the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) for piano teachers in Bangkok, entitled "Hallmarks of Distinction". This conference is famous and is held all over the world, but for the first time it was  held in Thailand.

Participants developed a deeper understanding of the examination,  marking criteria and experienced live performances from two concert pianists, Ann Martin-Davis and Loo Bang Hean.

Preparing for, and sitting, a music examination is very beneficial for students. It helps them develop a sense of commitment, it practices discipline, risk-taking, and self-confidence. External assessments can also confirm the quality of teaching and learning. We expect that our Prem instrumental students will use  good strategies gained from preparing for a music examination to develop themselves and apply these skills to other subjects and activities.

If any parent would like for their child to enter the ABRSM or Trinity examination, please contact Ajarn Santi.
