An astonishing  score for a first-year  University of  Toronto piano student.

 Rashaan Allwood scored a perfect 100 for his hour- long  Royal Conservatory piano exam – performing baroque, classical, romantic, impressionist and 20th century music.

18-year old Allwood’s flawless 100 score  won him the national gold medal as Canada’s  top student for the world-renowned “Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto”(ARCT) diploma.

And just last week  at the annual Toronto Kiwanis Music Festival, Rashaan  entered three categories: Chopin, Bach and Beethoven – and won them all. 

Allwood’s family immigrated to Canada  from Jamaica. He says that he is not deterred by  the lack of African-Canadians in his music circle.

Rashaan  says quote: “It doesn’t  matter what colour your skin is.  Music is music. You don’t   have to be Russian or German or Italian or Asian to do classical music.  It all comes from the soul, and we all have a soul.”
