Six young music students in Carrick were successful at the recent Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) exams held recently in Ayr.
Rosie Cara Cosslett gained violin Grade 1; Nicole Louise Govan and Eilidh Murray gained Grade 3 piano and Natalie Lynne Purdie, Lucy Cosslett and Mark William McMillan gained Grade 5 piano.
The above students are all pupils of instrumental music specialist Graeme Finnie, a graduate and former organ scholar of the Royal College of Music London, and presently Organist and Director of Music in Historic Galston Parish Church.
Graeme believes there is a wealth of musical instrumental talent in the Carrick area and beyond, as an influx of new students from the Barr area are proving after only a few months tuition.
Graeme Finnie teaches at Whitewin House, Golf Course Road, Girvan, Classical Organ, Piano, Violin and Singing. Pre Grade 1 to Grade 8 and presents students for external examinations affiliated to all the Royal Colleges of Music.
