For the first time, ABRSM have published a single volume of Guitar Exam Pieces for each of Grades 1-5
This volume contains 9 pieces for the syllabus from 2019
The new syllabus includes a variety of styles and includes duets for Grades 1–5. For the first time, students and teachers will have a wide collection of pieces from the syllabus now contained within one book.
The syllabus features many accomplished composers for guitar, drawn from a range of musical periods, and contains newly commissioned pieces as well as classical favourites. Learners will have the option of having a CD alongside the book. Audio downloads for all syllabus pieces will also be available online.
Gary Ryan, ABRSM Guitar Syllabus Consultant, said: 'Newly commissioned pieces and arrangements have been added with many of the most popular pieces from the old syllabus being retained to ensure candidates and teachers have a wide choice. Many of the significant composers for guitar feature in the new syllabus, and there are many new duets for candidates to choose from, now at Grades 1–5.'
