Thanks Ed. Just had a quick look and pleased to see not only that pieces are available in a single book to cover multiple lists and grades, but some of the books my students already play from now have exam pieces. Particularly pleased to see the Star Wars and Harry Potter inclusions. I think grade 4 may be delayed a term.

Just had an email back from the publishers and the Star Wars and Harry Potter tunes are the same arrangements as in the book my student already has. He is going to be one happy cornet player next week!!!!

Hmmm, went to the closest music shop and not only did they not have any of the new brass books, they didn't even know that there was a new brass syllabus. They did however reassure me that they had all the new piano books.

 

Too posh for brass :(

Thank you ABRSM for sending me a new Brass Syllabus book. :D    I failed to find one in any music shop over the last week.

I loved mine too! Ordered Cornish Pastiche - that arrived yesterday and looks brilliant - it has some 2017 graded pieces for trombone Splog, but I got the edition for treble B flat instruments for my cornet, flugel and euph students to play with. Also available for other instruments too - love the gorgeous Cornish folksongs! :)   :wub:
