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 a teacher of the ABRSM syllabus for over 30 years, I can pass on to you, the benefit of my experience, which has enabled my own private students, to obtain results, well above the national average. Since 2009, the ABRSM has stopped publishing their statistics, but the last available ones, show that only 50% of students taking exams, got a merit or distinction. At the time of publishing this e-book, I have entered over 200 students for ABRSM exams since 2005 of which, 78% got a merit or distinction in the last year. So you're in good hands.
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. So whether you're taking Grade 1 ABRSM or Grade 8, this book will be an invaluable resource for those taking graded music exams.
Within the pages of this ebook, which are packed with useful hints and tips on how to get the best possible mark, I have broken down the four aspects of the exam; Scales, Pieces, Aural and Sight Reading and you need to give adequate attention to each 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? Then read on....
