Niamh secures another outstanding Clarinet grading success

A talented musician added to her exceptional list of achievement with another significant grading success.

Niamh Cook, a Year 10 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, sat her Grade 7 Clarinet assessment prior to the summer break, which was administered by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music.

The 15-year-old produced a fantastic performance to secure a Merit as a result of her efforts, scoring a hugely impressive 126 out of a possible 150 marks.

This latest accolade has led to the Clarinet becoming the pupil’s joint-first instrument when she returns to school in September, with her astounding piano playing contributing significantly to a number of concerts throughout Rydal Penrhos during the academic year.

Niamh has already begun working hard in the lead-up to her Grade 8 grading, which she is planning to sit in the coming months.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “Niamh is an extremely talented individual who demonstrates the flair and composure we try to install into each pupil under our care here at Rydal Penrhos, and it is no surprise to see her achieving yet another music grading triumph.

“To have so much ability in both Clarinet and Piano really is a rare thing to see, and I consider myself extremely fortunate to be working with and progressing such an outstanding pupil that is sure to go on to great things in the future.”
