This will be the first full ameeb of the syllabus since and the release will include new technical work, repertoire including new Manual lists and grade books and sight reading, bringing the syllabus into line with current international best practice. Previous syllabus writers have all done a great job selecting and organising repertoire lists, and much of that material still represents the best of what is available.

The exciting new element is a collection amebb very short, very focussed exercises that are being specially composed to support and complement the more traditional technical content. And it will all be directed towards supporting engaged and expressive music making. One is its approach to technical work, and the other is the introduction of opportunities for pianists to involve themselves in collaborative music making.

We commenced the project early inand most of last year was spent investigating the available repertoire and developing our ideas about technical work. Perspectives on Performances for the Next Generation. Players on other instruments have ample opportunities to experience the ssyllabus of collaborative syllavus making, whether by working with a pianist or by performing as part of small or large ensembles.

Are there any other innovations that teachers and candidates will notice in the new syllabus?

Next article Beyond Recitals: Perhaps the most rewarding component of my own career has been the performances I have been able to give with other instrumentalists and singers.


The most crucial element of the process has been assembling the right team of contributors. There are two areas of significant change that will set this syllabus apart from its predecessors.

The opportunity to review and reshape a syllabus does not arise very often, so we really wanted to look at every element and come up with something that is fresh and fit for purpose. However, the project is about much more than mere refreshment.

We really hope that teachers will embrace this optional element of the syllabus and that candidates will enjoy both the social aspects of playing with someone else and the distinctive learning experiences that such activity can generate. And, of course, there is a vast amount of fabulous older repertoire that hardly anybody knows, and we wanted to share that as well.

The other big news, alluded to earlier, is that candidates preparing for level 2 will now be able to present one or more collaborative works as part of their examination programs.


Yes, scales and arpeggios remain as key ingredients sylllabus acknowledgedthough we have changed the number and sequencing of keys in each grade. You may also like.

So the new grade books and manual lists represent a mix of old and new, familiar and unfamiliar. How will this new syllabus be different from those that have preceded it?

As a whole, the technical work will have a very new but very friendly look. I think it is well understood that strong technical foundations lie at the root of all comfortable, expressive and rewarding music making, no matter what the instrument and style.


So we have tried to take a strategic approach to technical work that achieves the desired results, but in a way that is not syolabus burdensome and, hopefully, is even engaging and enjoyable.


Each of these highly qualified and highly respected professionals has taken carriage of one aspect of the syllabus, testing their ideas on the rest of the group on the way to developing the final content, and syllabks collaborative approach has worked really well. These were really enjoyable, syllaabus and helpful meetings. What approach are you taking to the technical work requirements in the new syllabus?

In fact, we were able to extend the process of collaboration and collegiality still further by running a series of consultation groups with teachers and examiners in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney with additional representatives flown in from Hobart and Perth.

We thought that this was an important way in which we could run our ideas past some of the people who will actually be using the syllabus, as well as enabling us to hear a range of other constructive thoughts that we were then able to feed into the process.

In the same year AMEB is celebrating their Centenary, they will also be releasing a new piano syllabus for use from However, many wonderful new resources have appeared in recent years and we were keen to incorporate them and to give the repertoire lists a fresh, new feel.

We were very fortunate here at The Piano Teacher to talk to David Lockett, the principal consultant of this piano review, to get some insights on this new release.

My fellow consultants and I wanted to actively encourage students to broaden their notion of what it is that pianists actually do.
