Helpinga Child Through Abrsm child through the abrsm exams Handy hints and exercises Used for daughter s grade 1 violin which she passed with flying colours and now with sons grade 2 piano Comes with a CD which is great Would highly recommend Never underestimate the value of the Aural part of the ABRSM exams It is a wonder that so many music teachers sideline it when valuable points can be picked up My daughter passed grade 1 2 piano with reasonable marks in the aural In grade 3 she used this book gained full marks in the aural tests which gave her the extra marks she needed to go from pass to distinctionThe book and cd use the language of the examiner and give many examples to practice for each part of the aural test They then tell you the correct answer which is just as well as i would have no clue if they were right or wrong This book covers grades 1 3 so is a good investment It is also relevant to the aural tests for all intrument and voice exams not just pianoYou can get even practice if you buy the specimen aural tests book too. Many practice exercises for ABRSM exams including answers where appropriate and CD recordings of all exercis.
