So we have tried to take a strategic approach to technical work that achieves the desired results, but in a way that is not too 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 this collaborative approach has worked really well.

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


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. 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.

As a whole, the technical work will have a very new but very friendly look. 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.

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 syllabue distinctive learning experiences that such activity can generate.


What approach are you taking to the technical work requirements in the new syllabus? How will this new syllabus be different from those that have preceded it? Perspectives on Performances for the Next Generation.

There are two areas of significant change that will set this syllabus apart from its predecessors.

The exciting new element is a collection syllqbus very short, very focussed exercises that are being specially composed to support and complement the more traditional technical content.

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 commenced the zmeb early inand most of last year was spent investigating the available repertoire and developing our ideas about technical work.

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.

Previous syllabus writers have all done a great job selecting and organising repertoire lists, and much ameh that material still represents the best of what is available. And it will all be directed towards supporting engaged and expressive music making. Players on other instruments have ample opportunities to experience the joys of collaborative music making, whether by working with a pianist or by performing as part of small or large ensembles.

In the same year AMEB is celebrating their Centenary, they will also be releasing a new piano syllabus for use from The most crucial element of the process has been assembling the right team of contributors.

One is its approach to technical work, and the other is the introduction of opportunities for pianists to involve themselves in collaborative music making.



Next article Beyond Recitals: 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 amfb enabling us to hear a range of other constructive thoughts that we smeb then able to feed into the process.

So the new grade books and manual lists represent a sllabus of old and new, familiar and unfamiliar. 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. This will be the first full revision 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.

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

Are there any other innovations that teachers and candidates will notice in the new syllabus? These were really enjoyable, stimulating and helpful meetings.

And, of course, there is a vast amount of fabulous older repertoire that hardly anybody knows, and we wanted to syllzbus that as well. However, the project is about much more than mere refreshment. Yes, scales and arpeggios remain as key ingredients pun acknowledgedthough we have changed the number and sequencing of keys in each grade.
