The new AMEB Technical Workbooks, Level 1 and Level 2 are necessary for students who have enrolled in the New Comprehensive Piano grade exams. The old (2008) AMEB Technical Workbook is required for students who have enrolled in the Old Comprehensive piano grade exams. Please click here for clarification.
Please note the following:
- A canon is only required in the Old Comprehensive Grade 1 exam format
- The new technical work sees a reduction in the volume of scales required compared to the technical work required in the Old Comprehensive syllabus
- In New Comprehensive exams, candidates may choose to memorise their technical exercises. If not memorised, the candidate must bring their own technical workbook into the exam room. Photocopies are not permitted in examinations.
- The instructions and exercises in the shaded boxes provide helpful tips and extension work for teachers and students. These sections of the Technical Workbooks (“Try This First” and “Extra for Experts”) are not examinable.
