In response to the growing popularity of percussive arts and the increasing number of performance opportunities, AMEB has developed a brand new percussion syllabus covering Preliminary to Licentiate of Music Australia. Join us for a play through by David Montgomery, syllabus consultant and eminent Australian composer and performer.
The new syllabus, available for examination in 2014, represents an entirely fresh approach to percussion by AMEB. Carefully constructed with special consideration for the requirements and challenges particular to the teaching and examination of percussion, the new syllabus is easy to understand for both teachers and students, and allows candidates access to the lower grades with only minimal instrumental resources. It features fresh contemporary repertoire and a diversity of musical styles including Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Jazz, and Contemporary.
The new Percussion syllabus is supported by a range of AMEB publications, including Grade Books containing repertoire for Preliminary to Fourth Grade and two Technical Work Books, containing the technical work requirements for Preliminary to Eighth Grade. In addition to this, the Percussion Sight-reading book features a large number of graded sight-reading exercises to assist in the development of sight-reading skills appropriate to each grade level.
To find out more about the new Percussion syllabus, please join us for a play through by David Montgomery, syllabus consultant and eminent Australian composer and performer.
