Our new 2015-2018 Electronic Keyboard syllabus is available now, alongside a set of new Pieces & Technical Work books for Initial to Grade 5. The new pieces include all-new arrangements alongside original compositions, spanning a wide range of styles and genres. Candidates are encouraged to be creative and inventive through options to include pieces which incorporate own interpretation and elements of improvisation at each grade.
The new technical work has been designed to develop important skills including keyboard functions, scalic exercises and pianistic exercises.
The new pieces and exercises are published in new books for Initial to Grade 5, available now through music retailers and Trinity’s online shop and exemplar recordings are available on CD.
Pieces and Technical Work books are also available for grades 6-8. Recently released, these books also accompany the new 2015-2018 Electronic Keyboard syllabus.
Chris Walters, Trinity’s Head of Qualifications - Music, said: “Our new syllabus for electronic keyboard has been developed with a team of specialist musicians, composers and teachers resulting in diverse and exciting repertoire lists and technical work that focuses on key areas for electronic keyboard players including keyboard functions. It offers various opportunities for candidates to demonstrate their individuality and gain recognition for their unique skills as performers, including options to improvise and play original pieces.”
A one year overlap arrangement is in place so candidates may perform repertoire and technical work from the current syllabuses until the end of 2015.
