    Heeeeeeeeeeeeelppp !?!?!

    Sorry to get back to you later. Without being able to hear it I can't say much but I would say that you are attempting to use a fusion of different styles. Assuming you are doing music1, you can talk about yes acoustic ... but it should fit under a genre. I think it may be rock/pop acoustic...

    Sick on prac day?

    The thing that confuses me is that I heard of anecdotes from teachers of people sitting the exam at a later date. This could be years ago when the system changed. I was hoping that it was somehow possible to do the exam later because it runs over two weeks.

    Please read my creative writing?!

    I liked reading your story, your idea is great :) The one thing that really annoyed me was your sentence construction. It is really boring for the reader to see every single sentence start off with "I". Allow me to demonstrate : I stared at the clock it was almost half past two. I felt really...

    How do other singers perform?

    It really depends on the song, my singing teacher is a theatre singer and he directs me sometimes and tells me what I am doing wrong. The answer really varies, I recently did my grade 8 singing exam and I stared at the examiner for the whole time, one song though was in English and it was a love...

    If you don't mind me asking ... what area do you live in? You can learn for half an hour a week ... many people starting out disagree to that but there is a lot you can get in half an hour. Some teachers allow for 45 minute lessons.

    I'm a singer and pianist who has worked with some proffessional accompanists and I've accompanied some singers before. There is no official way to 'claim' yourself as an accompanist, it's like teaching you are basically self employed. However it helps to be part of an association or guild ...
