On August 22, Jakob completed his Royal Conservatory of Music Grade 3 examination. The results are in, and he scored 87 -- First Class Honours!
The First Class Honours category applies to students who achieve scores of 80 to 89, so Jakob came in at the top end of the range, and just shy of the top category which is achieved by only 2% of students.
Jakob began studying piano at age four with the Music for Young Children program. He soon moved on to private lessons where he could progress at his own pace. He has made the decision to quit piano a few times, but has always come through in the end and carried on.
The only thing Jakob loves more than music is what ever he happens to be doing at any given moment.
