ABRSM Exam Week Spring 2012 Day 3: Venues, Students, and the Joy Of Uneventful Days

Day 3 went smoothly, uneventfully.  Not all exam days unfold in that manner...there are tales to tell, but not today.

The Nashville exams are blessed to have great venues, thanks to the generosity of a few local churches over the years. I know that this is not the case in many locations in the US and around the world, and it's not taken for granted.

A good venue provides a quiet, well-lit, comfortable room with a good piano, and a comfortable waiting room out of earshot, but within easy reach of the steward. The right venue contributes much to the joy of an uneventful day of examinations.

With little news to report, let me share a couple of images of happy candidates.  One of the perks of the job is watching bright kids grow up, and return to exams every six months a bit taller, more focused, and aware that they are accomplishing their goals.

Off to Lipscomb University for today's exams. More on that most special place later.
