This five-part online workshop series by Graham Fitch provides an interactive complement to our guides for the new ABRSM 2021 – 2022 examination syllabus on the Online Academy. In each of the sessions, Graham will look at the following topics for one or more grades:
Repertoire - Practice suggestions for learning selected pieces in addition to tips on technique, style and interpretation
Scales & arpeggios – Overcoming technical problems, practice suggestions and tips
General tips – How to prepare for an exam, practice strategies and dealing with performance nerves
Sight-reading - How to include sight-reading in day-to-day practice and as part of the weekly lesson
The following video provides a whistle-stop overview of the Grade 5 pieces and gives an illustration of what to expect for repertoire walk-throughs in both the sessions and the accompanying Online Academy resources:
This workshop series will be useful not only for candidates and piano teachers following the syllabus, but also for those who want to learn some exciting new repertoire, make progress with scales and arpeggios, improve their sight-reading, and learn strategies for performance preparation and dealing with performance nerves.
As with all of our workshops, the sessions will be recorded. Included in the ticket price is also the full set of Online Academy video walk-throughs available for the grades featured in each session. Therefore if you're not able to attend on the day, you will be able to watch the workshop in your own time and have access to further value-added resources.
