5.0 out of 5 stars Grade 3 piano
Amazon have posted this review in the wrong place... please note this review is for the book with cd, not for this one which has no cd!

This book has the music for 3 pieces from each of the 3 sections of the ABRSM exam pieces. It also includes a cd with all the pieces (including the ones the sheet music is not included for) which can be played in the exam...

3.0 out of 5 stars Thin and ridiculous HUGH packaging. Took a month to get the item finally !!
I personally don't like the packaging. Thin material and much wider then the postbox size. The packaging material is so thin, it allows the postman to bend the book into half and push it through the post box. I would not like a new book to be bend right in the middle, so I've sent it back for a replacement with paying my own postage through Royal Mail...

5.0 out of 5 stars Grade 3 piano, 1 Oct 2012

Amazon have posted this review in the wrong place... please note this review is for the book with cd, not for this one which has no cd!

This book has the music for 3 pieces from each of the 3 sections of the ABRSM exam pieces. It also includes a cd with all the pieces (including the ones the sheet music is not included for) which can be played in the exam

I would reccommend getting the book with the cd rather than teh one with just the sheet music. You can hear all the pieces before choosing which ones to spend the next few months playing over and over again to learn for the exam!! You can also listen to how the track should sound, practice playing along simultaneously, and get it as close as possible, gaining as many marks as possible... Which is after all the whole point of using this book. The book with cd does cost more but only as much as an extra lesson and nowhere near the cost of re-sitting the exam!

I would also reccommend anyone sitting ABRSM exams to get the Aural training books too, you can pick up lots of marks in this part and it can be the difference between pass, merit and distinction. It seems too many teachers side-line this part of the exam...

5.0 out of 5 stars Interpretation, 21 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Piano Exam Pieces 2013 & 2014, ABRSM Grade 3: Selected from the 2013 & 2014 syllabus (ABRSM Exam Pieces) (Sheet music)
If you really want your pupils to stand a chance of the coveted distinction that comes with an overall mark of 130, you need to hear these preferred interpretations of the pieces (performed by rated pianists including Gwilym Simcock). These Associated Board 'recommended' recordings have come a long way since their early incarnations of roughly recorded and performed audio-cassette recordings. The current set are professional and sho you just how the pieces are to be played to achieve maximum marks (the readings help you to interpret EXACTLY how the markings are to be observed on the score - sometimes at odds with what you might think was appropriate).

Took a while to establish this was the Grade 3 exam book as they've changed the front cover design but so far so good and a very good price!

My twelve year old was told she would need this book to pass her grade 3 exam. It seems fairly easy songs compared to the last one we had to buy. Very good condition and will hopefully stay the current grade 3 book for a while.
