just read the sylabus for this and I'm REALLY excited by it!
I hate singing - don't need to do that so no more "la-ing"
I'm slow at site reading - no more of that
I'm fine with scales which isn't an issue as I'll still practice those.
But the local place where exams are held has an AWFUL piano which I always hate playing so being able to record my "exam" would be great.
Well done ABRSM I can't wait to get stuck into this, won't be going back to the other route now. I'm sure it does reduce the overall level of ability as of course it's less to be tested on but I'm really happy they've done it.
