Hi
I am thinking of sitting grade 1. Would love to hear of anyone who are on the above syllabus, and how they attain their exam/score material. And share any experiences and thoughts on pursuing these exams.

As a background, I have been playing over over 5 years and I have a great teacher. Originally just wanted to learn for fun/joy. Done too many professional exams in my life that sitting any exams was off the table. However, seeing the improvements with consistency in my practice...I am toying with the idea.
Thx in advance.

Nice thread. I am also interested in exams, and even put it in my annual piano goals for 2019, although I'm more interested in RCM at the moment, but could be convinced to go for another one instead. It seems that in my area (Washington DC) the big three international piano exams that are offered are RCM, ABRSM, and Trinity. All three offer exam locations that are just a few miles from me.

Thank you...I will enjoy reading it...

All three schools are great. Let me know which one you end up. I have yet to tell my teacher as I need to internalize what it will take for me..I am also running my first marathon [14 years revisit] this year. Both running and music brings me joy, which I need in abundance! Let me he’d over there and start reading.
