ABRSM Guitar Prep Test from 2019




The Guitar Prep Test is an ideal introduction to the ABRSM exam experience: it gives students a goal to work towards and a certificate on the day - something to be really proud of. The test covers elements that beginner guitarists will be working on, including pitch, time, tone and performance. Candidates play three short tunes from memory, as well as choosing two pieces to play (one of which can be a duet).

The Guitar Prep Test book has been completely refreshed for use from January 2019 onwards, with five new pieces (including two duets), three short tunes and examples of listening games to help candidates prepare.

First Piece:

James - Wobbegong Waltz, The

Pells - Uptown Shuffle

Ryan - Waddling Ducks (duet)

Sanderson - Old Firework-Maker

Snowden - Danza espanola (duet)
