Electronic Keyboard & Organ

Putting performance first

Build authentic skills
Build the specific skills used by keyboardists, including playing with a range of instrument voices in time with accompaniment patterns, and developing an understanding of common scales, modes and chord progressions. Explore the technical possibilities of your instrument, and develop skills that are also relevant for learning piano and Rock & Pop keyboards.

Explore diverse repertoire
Discover pieces across a variety of styles and genres - including popular classics, show tunes, film themes, jazz, folk and world music - and develop your technique through performing a wide range of music

The Electronic Keyboard & Organ 2015-2018 Syllabus and overlap information

Trinity has a one-year overlap between syllabuses during which time candidates may offer pieces and technical work from either the 2015-2018 or 2019-2022 syllabus, but not a mixture of both. There is no overlap for supporting tests, and the previous aural tests and improvisation tests can therefore no longer be used.
