ABRSM Grade1 (16 Lessons)

Objective of this program is to teach students the content of ABRSM Grade 1 material. 

The ABRSM Grade 1 Exam consists of 4 section:

1.       Songs: Students are required to play 3 songs – one from List A, List B and List C respectively

2.       Scales and arpeggios

3.       Sight Reading – Candidates will be asked to play a short unaccompanied piece of music which they have not seen before. They will be given half a minute to look through and, if they wish, try out all or any part of the test before they are asked to play it for assessment.

4.       Aural Test – 4 sections in aural test: (a) To clap the pulse of a piece played by the examiner, and to identify whether it is in two time or three time  (2) To sing as ‘echoes’ three phrases played by the examiner (c) To identify where a change in pitch occurs during a phrase played by the examiner. (d) To answer a question about two features of the piece played by examiner
