The ABRSM Cello syllabus for 2020-2023 offers teachers and students more choice than ever before, with new features that will appeal to learners at all grades. The repertoire lists have been refreshed and are organised in a revised structure which moves away from lists devised solely by period of composition and instead concentrates more on the style of the music. There is also a focus on cross-string teaching at the lower grades, with some of the same pieces being set for multiple instruments.
This book features nine pieces from the syllabus at Grade 3, covering lists A, B and C.
