Top Grade 8 Oboe score
Barney Couch has only been playing the oboe for 6 years. In the autumn of this academic year, he took Grade 8 — scoring 146/150.
To drop just 4 marks is extraordinary. Barney's marks were the highest anywhere in the world for this exam session. Barney was awarded a Gold Bursary certificate by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music for his outstanding achievement.
