Trinity College London has announced the launch of its Piano Syllabus 2021-2023. With a significantly higher volume of repertoire than before and featuring brand new pieces from winners of Trinity’s Young Composer’s Competition, this marks a major development in the exam board’s Piano provision.
Extensive repertoire: Candidates can choose from our largest syllabus list to date, which includes 35 pieces per grade, a range of international composers and a selection of popular pieces from the 2018-2020 syllabus.
Re-imagined books: There are now a minimum of 12 pieces available in each grade book, with 21 pieces included in the Extended Edition – nine via an additional ebook. Both editions include detailed performance notes while the Extended Edition also includes scales, arpeggios and downloadable audio.
Young Composer’s Competition: Aspiring composers can take inspiration from the inclusion of one new piece per grade written by the winners of our Young Composer’s Competition.
Flexible syllabus: Candidates can personalise their exam – with the option of performing their own, original composition, a duet at grades Initial to 3 and their own choice of supporting tests.
Online support: A range of free, online support resources, produced with professional musicians and educators, help develop performance skills and musical knowledge.
Play It Forward: Trinity is proud to be featuring the compositions of nine young international composers, one at each grade, throughout the syllabus. To celebrate these remarkable new pieces, Trinity will be inviting pianists to download a free book of three of these compositions and sharing videos of performances from all over the world under the hashtag #TrinityPlayItForward.
