  • Reviews

    ""The contents are uniformly impressive, comprehensive and extremely helpful not only to candidates and teachers but to the needs of music education generally and amateur piano playing in particular. Editorial suggestions are of the same high quality as we have come to expect from ABRSM; ornamentation, fingering, phrasing and hints on tempo and characterisation are subtle, sensitive and never over-prescriptive … the new ABRSM syllabus and accompanying support material remains as the gold standard among exam syllabuses.""

    By: International Piano

    ""The new selection of pieces from ABRSM for examinations in 2011 and 2012 is full of enterprise, novelty, variety and imagination … I thoroughly recommend that the recordings of the syllabus are listened to – not only for insights into the syllabus, but also for pure pleasure.""

    By: Piano Professional

    ""A good choice of repertoire is vital in every aspect of practical teaching, and in this syllabus the choice for every grade gives the opportunity to match the pieces to the pupil. In terms of layout the quality is good, with clear presentation and easy-to-read marks of expression. I also like the brief historical backgrounds on the pieces.""
