The Piano 2018-2020 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 2018-2020 or 2021-2023 syllabus, but not a mixture of both. Please note that although selected pieces from the 2018–2020 syllabus have been retained as repertoire options, candidates using the 2021–2023 syllabus must prepare the exercises listed in the 2021–2023 syllabus.
