Success in Associated Board Flute Exams!
Flute players at De Bohun have set a new first this year with three students on the instrument successfully gaining passes in grade exams. Sava recorded a merit pass at grade 3 and Ellie and Ethan passed their grade 1, Ethan with a merit pass.
These children form part of a group of students we started on the instrument in Year 4 as part of a ‘Tune In’ scheme at our school. The flute is not the easiest of instruments, initially at least, since much work is required to perfect the embouchure – so that you don’t waste too much breath! Sava, Ellie and Ethan have shown the progress that can be achieved with consistent practice over time. Well done to each of them!
