How to get a distinction at ABRSM - PERFORMANCE GRADES

ABRSM Performance Grades



The fact that you are reading this, means that you are serious about getting a distinction in your next ABRSM exam. By putting into practice the advice in this ebook, you can be confident of doing just that. As a teacher of the ABRSM syllabus for over 35 years, and more recently, since the introduction of the new performance grades I have helped students from all over the world to prepare for this new format. So you’re in good hands.

Getting a good mark, is not just a question of spending hours and hours of practising your instrument, but knowing how to practice and also knowing what the examiner is looking for. As well as studying the official ABRSM marking criteria, I have done in depth analysis of the comment sheets that are given to the students with their results, which are very revealing in this regard.

In this book, you will learn not only what the examiner is looking for with regard to the individual pieces but also how to obtain a high mark in the rather ambiguous section “the performance as a whole” and I have outlined in depth what you need in both of these aspects in order to get a distinction. So are you ready to start preparing for your next exam and get the mark you deserve?
