EQUIVALENT WITH 1-8 PRACTICAL GRADES, WHICH ARE EQUIVALENT TO THE APPLIED EXAMS, WHICH ARE STARTED FOR THE PANDEMIA PROCESS BUT WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP, 1-8 PERFORMANCE GRADES (PERFORMANCE EXAMS) ARE HIGHLIGHTS:
Video recording of four pieces prepared by the examinee should be made.
Video recording must be in 720p resolution.
It doesn't matter what the recorder is.
Before starting the recording of the piece, the student will introduce himself to the camera, show the previously prepared program that includes the transcription of the pieces to be played or the songs he will sing, and introduce the pieces he will play by reading to the camera. Format is on ABRSM's website.
Students who want to take the exam in Stages 6, 7 and 8 must have passed the Stage 5 Music Theory exam beforehand.
Performance Grade exams do not have Initial Grade and Preparatory / Prep Test (Preparation Stage) exams.
Students will take exams only in parts. There are no other auxiliary exams, namely Hearing, Deciphering, Scale and Arpeggios. There is no Sight-Singing assistant exam in the Singing section.
Three parts are created by selecting one part from the lists A, B, and C of the corresponding guide. The Singing section should be accompanied by three pieces of piano. The fourth piece can be with or without piano accompaniment.
The fourth piece may still be from the manual, but it may not.
The 4th Part selected must be suitable for the difficulty level of the stage entered. Choosing a more difficult piece will not earn any plus points.
The duration of the fourth part is specified in the manual for each stage.
The fourth piece could also be the duet piece shown in the manual as DUET. However, these duet pieces are not included in the Exam Pieces book (ie Exam Pieces Book) published by ABRSM. Therefore, if you want to select this duet piece, it will have to be obtained from a different publication whose name is specified in the manual.
The total program duration for each stage is specified in the syllabus.
The four tracks will be recorded consecutively as if the examinee was in a recital.
The examinee may take a single break between four parts. Where this break will be given should be included in the written program that will be shown to the camera at the beginning of the video recording.
You can find sample video recordings of these exams on ABRSM'S WEBSITE. www.abrsm.org/performancegrades
We wish you luck.
