The 'grades' next to 'standard required' are those of the ABRSM. If you have not taken a cello exam or are not aware of the ABRSM grading system don't worry - you do not have to have taken or have any knowledge of ABRSM grades to attend Oxford Cello School, they are merely a useful way to gauge which course is the most suitable. If you require assistance just call or email us and we will be able to recommend a course to you.
