A talented vocalist at Rydal Penrhos has added to his impressive list of recent achievements with a superb grading result.
Tegid Goodman-Jones, a Year 10 pupil at the school, came through his latest Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music assessment with flying colours, and managed to secure a Distinction in his Grade Five Singing after another standout effort.
The 15-year-old Music scholar has achieved a plethora of regional and national awards during what has been an outstanding young career to date, and he will now begin working towards gaining further accolades throughout the remainder of the academic year.
During the autumn he was awarded the Year 7-11 Scholarship from the Deiniolen Eisteddfod, and also Most Promising Musician Under 30 title at the Eisteddfod Melin Y Coed following an outstanding performance.
He also assisted at his local church during a special re-dedication event, and Tegid said: “It was nice to meet the Bishop and interact with the lovely community. Hoping for more wonderful opportunities like this.”
Director of Music Pete Williams, added: “Tegid’s extraordinary achievements are well documented and for him to get a Distinction from such a testing assessment was very pleasing.
“He is a hard-working, polite young man who has an incredible talent, and Tegid is sure to go on to great things in the future if he continues to show the same application.”
