MAKING THE GRADE
2017/Ireland (82 minutes)
Director: Ken Wardrop
In Ireland over 30,000 students prepare for piano exams each year. Making The Grade is a musical journey through a demanding piano grading system from an absolute beginner through to accomplished pianist. It is a stirring journey of students’ musical passions and perseverance, of teacher dedication, parental ambitions and the occasional musical drama.
