Trinity College London – ATCL

Hello blog people,

The culmination of my course at Drum Tech has been two sets of exams. The usual series that mark the end of semester 3 (why do we still call them semesters when there are more than two?!) which count towards my Tech Music Schools course; but also a gruelling day in which two representatives of the Trinity College came to assess several aspects of my musical knowledge.

Skipping to the abrupt end of the saga, I passed the Drum Tech Master Performance Course, and I passed the Trinity ATCL. I actually got a distinction with 89% in my written materials for the ATCL, but sadly didn’t quite make the same impact with the rest of the exam and missed out on a distinction across the whole board. I’m quite proud of myself.

So that’s it, school’s done, what’s next?
