The Grade By Grade series draws on the rich and varied Boosey & Hawkes catalogue of classical, contemporary and educational repertoire, highlighting composers including Serge Prokofieff, Dmitri Shostakovich, Karl Jenkins, Carol Barratt and Christopher Norton, alongside arrangements of traditional music from around the world by Peter Wastall, Vera Gray and others.

Carefully selected by Janet Way, this practical anthology provides the complete repertoire resource for the aspiring Grade 1 saxophonist and creates the perfect package for teaching, exam preparation and performance.

Each volume contains:
  • 19 pieces & short studies, each complemented by a useful practice and performance tip
  • grade-appropriate scales and arpeggios linked to the repertoire through bespoke text and exercises
  • brand new sight-reading activities
  • newly-commissioned aural awareness tasks
  • a piano accompaniment booklet


Packaged with a CD of full performance demonstrations, piano backing tracks, and grade-appropriate aural awareness resources.

"Designed as a repertoire builder, this books delivers a varied selection of pieces and duets. There is also a selection of tests in the book, which are accompanied by helpful hints and guidelines and which set the volume apart from other repertoire builders. There are aural exercises that closely match the ABRSM syllabus, sight reading exercises, and scale selections that complement the surrounding pieces. The whole thing has been presented in a very informative and non-threatening way. The piano parts are written very well and are played sensitively on the backing track CD. In conclusion, I believe this book a very good example of its genre."

Paul Saunders - Music Teacher Magazine, June 2014
