几个附件的PDF文件是:

GettingStarted-NMCP.pdf 是模拟考题

popular selection list.pdf

TAP_syllabus_piano_2012.pdf

LRCM piano syllabus.pdf

 

Celebration_Series_Perspectives Index.pdf

 

这套书就是考级必备的,一般是买两本,一本厚的是Repertoire, 一本薄的是Studies/Etudes, 另外还有光盘。我还是比较建议买,因为一般一本书都要用1年左右,而且再加上参加比赛的话,总是可以用得上1年到1年半左右的,而且老师还会在上面圈点出孩子需要改进的地方等等。

附件是这套书的目录,因为上次有个妈妈问我要9级的书的目录,想知道一下RCM9级的曲目,附件是从1到10级的曲目目录。当然从popular list里也可以看到曲子对应的等级。RCM的等级和国内的等级还是不一样的,相对来说国内如果是4级的曲子可能在RCM就会是5级甚至6级的曲子。

 

另外女儿还用了两套书,Four Star Sight Reading and Ear Tests 

还有一套我忘记名字了,改天找出来再补上。

这两套都是分等级的。
