Music star Miles Poller gains Distinction in Grade 6 Saxophone exam

A gifted musician at Rydal Penrhos is celebrating after achieving a notable grading success.

Miles Poller, a Year 11 pupil at the school, managed to gain an impressive Distinction in his Trinity Grade 6 Saxophone exam.

The 16-year-old, who is currently sitting his GCSE examinations, scored a superb 89 out of a possible 100 marks to achieve the honour.

He did particularly well in his first two pieces gaining 21/22 marks for each, and also helped himself to a perfect 10/10 in the aural section of the assessment.

The pupil then went on to score 17/22 for his third piece, before recording 12/14 in his study and 8/10 for sight to end up with a comfortable Distinction for his efforts.

This is the latest in a long line of successes for Miles, who have made a significant contribution to both Concerts and Dramatic Society performances during his time at Rydal Penrhos.

Director of Music Pete Williams, said: “Miles has done a fantastic job of juggling his revision and practicing hard for this grading triumph, which demonstrates fantastic organisational skills and a great passion for what he is doing.

“He has evolved into a supremely talented individual and a selfless contributor to a number of areas of Rydal Penrhos, and I am thrilled that his commitment has earned him a Distinction in what is a strenuous grading process.”
