I would maybe suggest that you contact the Barbados Community College as they do have a Fine Arts/Applied Arts department. How advanced it is etc I have no idea. http://bcc.edu.bb/ I would suggest trying to find out through BCC what they know about doing this in Barbados.

there are children/young adults etc, that do piano privately, not in schools who do take Royal Schools of Music exams each year through there receptive teachers.

I have a friend who is a professional saxophonist who also teaches (and his wife is a dance instructor who uses the Royal Academy of Ballet exmas. I may be able to ask a question to see what they can tell us.

[email protected] is the only one I see on their website. Telephone: (246) 432-8462 you may want to try a quick phone call just to make sure directly with them.

Not surprising.. and yes, very frustrating.. even for someone living here.. I'll have a look in the local directory and see what we come up with.
