Making the Grade

Playing the piano is a practice almost as old as time itself, with some children beginning to develop their skills as early as two to three years of age. In Ireland alone, over 30,000 students prepare for demanding piano exams every single year. From beginner to accomplished pianist, the brutal grading system takes on all and decides who can move forward into a beautifully musical career.
