Candidate 1952

Service Playing Exam, Candidate #1952

Please grade each of the following performances and give marks and encouraging comments. The whole thing can be simply written in a Word document and e-mailed to me. I’ll add the RCCO crest etc, record the marks and send your marks and comments to the candidate.

You’ll need two documents at hand while doing this. One is the syllabus requirements and the other is the Service Playing hymn leaflet from which the candidate will play
