USING THIS BOOKLET This syllabus booklet is designed to assist teachers, candidates, parents and organizations in preparing for ABRSM brass exams. As well as reading this booklet, it is important to consult the following two resources: •      Exam Information & Regulations (published annually) •      T  hese Music Exams – contains practical advice for candidates, teachers and parents The syllabus, together with the above two publications, constitutes ABRSM’s overall exam specification; all are available free of charge from music retailers and from www.abrsm.org/exams. In this booklet the brass syllabuses are listed, grade by grade, on pp. 9–85. Please note that the lifespan of each individual syllabus is marked at the top of each Grade 1 page. There are also some important syllabus requirements featured on pp. 6–8. Other information in this booklet includes advice on obtaining exam music and a list of contact details for publishers, as well as a blank exam programme & running order form for your convenience. For information on current and future syllabus changes across all ABRSM subjects, see the syllabus updates on the inside front and back covers.

NEW FOR BRASS This syllabus booklet contains new set pieces for Horn, Eb Horn, Baritone/ Euphonium and Tuba. The only other changes that have been made in this booklet are: •      the inclusion of the natural form of the minor scale, which is now offered as an option in Grades 1 and 2 (see www.abrsm.org/naturalminor) •      updates to information concerning UK accreditation •      updates to publication details This syllabus booklet will last until the next changes to the brass syllabuses come into force in 2017, i.e. new set pieces for Trumpet and Trombone. Any updates during this period – e.g. changes to publication details or other minor corrections – will be posted at www.abrsm.org/exams.

WELCOME TO ABRSM ABRSM supports music teaching and learning throughout the world. We motivate musical achievement and encourage the development of well-rounded musicians through our authoritative exams, the professional development of teachers, and a wide range of published resources. By delivering our exams rigorously and consistently we set the worldwide gold standard in music assessment, with over 600,000 people, in over 90 countries, choosing to take them each year. As part of our commitment to excellence in music education, we provide a rich range of materials, from albums for the earliest stages of learning to scholarly editions of standard repertoire. Our online presence includes Soundjunction – an awardwinning site for music learning. We support the professional development of teachers through our innovative courses and online learning resources. To build on our 120 years inspiring generations of musicians, we provide charitable donations, scholarships and sponsorships, as well as acting as an advocate for music education. We do all we can to give music education a voice in public life because we believe music has the power to change lives. ABRSM has the authority of four of the UK’s leading conservatoires: the Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Royal Northern College of Music. You can find out more about all of our activities at www.abrsm.org.

INTRODUCING ABRSM SYLLABUSES The long-lasting success of ABRSM in supporting instrumental and vocal teachers and learners can be attributed to a number of factors. Significant among these is our collaborative approach to syllabus development, in which the views of a wide range of teachers is sought, alongside those of our examiners and specialist panels. This ensures that our syllabuses are relevant and accessible to all, no matter which teaching and learning approaches are adopted. A syllabus is, after all, a set of requirements for assessment purposes and not an instrumental or vocal curriculum. Repertoire selection is another important factor, because experiencing the finest music is at the heart of musical training; it sustains and motivates all developing musicians. In each repertoire list we aim to produce a harmonious blend of styles and moods (as well as technical elements), so that the choices are broad and varied enough to suit all tastes while setting appropriate demands at each level. All syllabuses are supported by publications, recordings or other resources. Other aspects of the exams contributing to ABRSM’s success include: •      a policy of using highly qualified and trained ‘generalist’ examiners, who work to transparent, easily understood criteria •      rigorous quality-assurance provisions that ensure consistent and reliable standards in all areas of our work •      a proven track record of reliable exam delivery and administration Graded exams are available for more than 30 instruments, singing, jazz, ensembles, practical musicianship and music theory. They support a framework for life-long learning in music, without restrictions on age, length of study, or the requirement that candidates are taught in schools or other centres. Many students will start with the Prep Test, a simple and positive assessment at the pre-Grade 1 level, and then work through the eight grades, but we do not impose a set pattern. For students who progress beyond Grade 8 we offer professional diplomas (DipABRSM, LRSM and FRSM) in three subject areas: performing, directing and teaching. For younger learners, Music Medals offer a set of fun, rewarding and accredited assessments supported by award-winning repertoire. They introduce essential musical skills and inspire developing musicians to play and enjoy music together. ABRSM exams give the developing musician a set of worthwhile and motivational goals to work for. They provide the opportunity of performing high-quality music and developing all-round musicianship through a range of supporting activities. Measuring yourself against international benchmarks can be daunting, but we do all we can to make the experience a pleasurable one. The glow of achievement which exam success brings makes all that effort worthwhile. Nigel Scaife Syllabus Director 5


BRASS SYLLABUS REQUIREMENTS Programme planning Candidates should use their discretion in their choice of three pieces to present a contrasted and balanced programme. One piece must be chosen from each of the three lists in each grade (A, B and C). Tuning-up Candidates must tune their instruments themselves at all grades. However, the teacher or accompanist may advise on tuning at Grades 1–5, if needed. Music stands All ABRSM Centres provide a music stand, but candidates are welcome to bring their own if they prefer. Accompaniment A live piano accompaniment is required for all pieces in List A and List B (except those which are published as unaccompanied works). Candidates must provide their own accompanist, who may remain in the exam room only while engaged in accompanying. The candidate’s teacher may act as accompanist; under no circumstances will the examiner do so. All List C pieces are to be performed unaccompanied. Tuttis Accompanists should make cuts to extensive orchestral tuttis in concerto (or similar) movements. Cadenzas Cadenzas should not be played unless specified in the syllabus. Bass/treble clef For the purposes of administering the scale and sight-reading requirements, examiners will ask trombone, baritone, euphonium and tuba candidates whether they are bass- or treble-clef readers. Scales and arpeggios Examiners will usually ask for at least one of each type of scale/arpeggio etc. required at each grade, as well as aiming to hear a balance of the specified articulations. When asking for requirements, examiners will specify only: •      the key (including minor form – harmonic or melodic – in the Grade 6–8 scales) •      the articulation All scales and arpeggios should: •      be played from memory •      begin from the lowest possible tonic/starting note unless otherwise specified in the syllabus* •      ascend and descend according to the specified range

*  Disregarding additional lower notes available to trombones with a trigger or to baritones, euphoniums and tubas with a 4th valve

Brass syllabus requirements

•      be played without undue accentuation and at a pace that is consistent with accuracy and distinctness Recommended minimum speeds are given online at www.abrsm.org/scalespeeds and in These Music Exams (available online or free of charge from music retailers). They are also to be found in the books of scale requirements published for all brass subjects by ABRSM. For transposing instruments, the naming of scales applies to the notation, not the concert pitch; for example, D major for trumpet in B b will sound in C, not D. Arpeggios, dominant and diminished sevenths are required in root position only. Sight-reading The sight-reading tests are without accompaniment. Candidates will be given a short interval of up to half a minute in which to look through and, if they wish, try out any part of the test before they are required to perform it for assessment. The same procedure applies to the transposition tests for Grades 6–8 horn and trumpet candidates. Books of specimen sight-reading tests are published for all brass subjects by ABRSM. Performance and assessment When marking, examiners will be assessing not only the accuracy of notes and rhythm, but also other elements inherent in a good performance, including intonation, quality of tone, suitable choice of tempo, and expression and phrasing. Further details of assessment criteria are given in These Music Exams. Marking scheme Schedule of maximum marks for all grades: Pieces: 1 2 3 Aural tests

EXAM MUSIC AND PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS (extracted from the Exam Information & Regulations booklet, which should be read in conjunction with this syllabus) a The individual sections of the exam may be attempted in any order, at the candidate’s choice (although, ideally, accompanied pieces should be performed consecutively). If an accompanied exam begins with any section other than the pieces, the steward should be advised in advance so that the accompanist can be summoned at the appropriate time. b Teachers and candidates are advised to pay close attention to the syllabus requirements on pp. 6–7, the instrument-specific requirements as well as to those indicated in the current lists of syllabus pieces. A ‘piece’ comprises all the music set under one number-heading in the syllabus lists (unless an option is specifically indicated). Therefore, a ‘piece’ may comprise more than one movement from a work or more than one item from an album. c  Where appropriate, the initial tempo indication (or section title) of a piece/movement is listed in the syllabus. Where a piece/movement comprises more than one tempo indication (or section title), the whole piece/movement is still required to be played in the exam (unless otherwise indicated). d Candidates failing to observe specific syllabus requirements or regulations (i.e. performing a piece not listed in the syllabus, or not being prepared to perform the full extent of a piece as indicated in the syllabus) may be penalized, or, in certain cases, disqualified. e ABRSM offers a limited overlap period, during which pieces from the preceding syllabus may, under certain conditions, be performed (see syllabus updates on the inside front cover of this booklet). f  Candidates may use any edition (in- or out-of-print or downloadable) of the pieces listed in the syllabus, except where a specific arrangement or transcription is indicated. The editions quoted in the syllabus are given for guidance only and are not obligatory. g  Candidates may use their discretion regarding indications or markings (particularly editorial) in the music – e.g. metronome marks, fingering, phrasing, the interpretation of ornaments, etc. – which need not be strictly observed. Where no such indications are present in the music, candidates should use their discretion to achieve a musical performance. h Candidates should observe da capo and dal segno indications, but other repeats of more than a few bars should not be played in the exam, unless stipulated in the syllabus. i Performing from memory is optional. The examiner is at liberty to review a copy of the music before or after the performance of any piece; therefore, candidates performing from memory must ensure that a copy of the music is available for the examiner’s use. j Examiners may, at their discretion, stop the performance of any piece when they have heard enough to form a judgement. k The Copyright, Design and Patents Act 1988 (UK) does not permit the making or use of photocopies (or other kinds of copies) of copyright works. However, the UK Music Publishers’ Association’s Code of Fair Practice (available at www.mpaonline.org.uk) allows copies to be made in certain limited circumstances (such as a difficulty with a particular page-turn) but only if the copyright holder is listed in Appendix C of the Code. In all other cases, application should be made to the copyright holder before any copy is made. It is the Applicant’s responsibility to ensure that candidates act within the law with respect to the making and use of photocopies (or other copies). ABRSM reserves the right to withhold the exam result of any candidate where it has evidence of the use of an illegal copy (or copies) in connection with that exam. 8


HORN (Subject Code: 13) This syllabus is valid from 2013 until further notice. In Grades 1–3, this syllabus may be offered on a mini-horn in Bb or F. The accompanied pieces are published in F editions unless otherwise indicated. For those pieces not published in F, candidates may use manuscript transpositions of their parts if necessary. Some List C pieces are published with transposition suggestions but in the exam they should be played in the written keys only.

AURAL TESTS: included in the Practical exams for all subjects Listening lies at the heart of all good music-making. Developing aural awareness is fundamental to musical training because having a ‘musical ear’ impacts on all aspects of musicianship. Singing, both silently in the head and out loud, is one of the best ways to develop the ‘musical ear’. It connects the internal imagining of sound, the ‘inner ear’, with the external creation of it, without the necessity of mechanically having to ‘find the note’ on an instrument (important though that connection is). By integrating aural activities in imaginative ways in the lesson, preparation for the aural tests within an exam will be a natural extension of what is already an essential part of the learning experience. In the exam Aural tests are an integral part of all Practical graded exams. The tests are administered by the examiner from the piano. For any test that requires a sung response, pitch rather than vocal quality is the object. The examiner will be happy to adapt to the vocal range of the candidate, whose responses may be sung to any vowel (or consonant followed by a vowel), hummed or whistled (and at a different octave, if appropriate). Assessment A number of tests allow for a second attempt or for an additional playing by the examiner, if necessary. Also, where there is hesitation on the part of the candidate, the examiner will be ready to prompt, if necessary. In any such cases, this will affect the assessment. Further information on how the aural tests are assessed can be found in the guide for candidates, teachers and parents, These Music Exams, available to download from www.abrsm.org/exams. Minor modifications (from 2011) This syllabus includes the minor modifications introduced to some aural tests in 2011. Specimen tests Examples of the tests are given in new editions (from 2011) of Specimen Aural Tests and Aural Training in Practice, available for purchase from music retailers and from www.abrsm.org/shop. Deaf or hearing-impaired candidates Deaf or hearing-impaired candidates may opt to respond to alternative tests in place of the standard tests, if requested at the time of entry. The syllabus for these tests is available free on request from ABRSM (E accesscoordinator@abrsm.ac.uk). Examples of the alternative tests are available for purchase from Allegro Music (T +44 (0)1885 490375; E sales@allegro.co.uk). The minor modifications (from 2011) do not affect the alternative aural tests.

D

To clap the pulse of a piece played by the examiner, and to identify whether it is in two time or three time. The examiner will start playing the passage, and the candidate should join in as soon as possible, clapping in time and giving a louder clap on the strong beats. The examiner will then ask whether the music is in two time or three time. The candidate is not required to state the time signature. To sing as ‘echoes’ three phrases played by the examiner. The phrases will be two bars long, in a major key, and within the range of tonic–mediant. First the examiner will play the key-chord and the starting note (the tonic) and then count in two bars. After the examiner has played each phrase, the candidate should sing back the echo without a pause, keeping in time. To identify where a change in pitch occurs during a phrase played by the examiner. The phrase will be two bars long, in a major key, and the change will affect only one of the notes. First the examiner will play the key-chord and the tonic and then count in two bars. The examiner will play the phrase twice, making the change in the second playing, after which the candidate should state whether the change was near the beginning or near the end. If necessary, the examiner will play both versions of the phrase again (although this will affect the assessment). To answer questions about two features of a piece played by the examiner. Before playing, the examiner will tell the candidate which two features the questions will be about. The first will be: dynamics (loud/quiet, or sudden/gradual changes); the second will be articulation (smooth/ detached).

THEORY OF MUSIC (Subject Code: 99) Developing literacy with the tonal language forms a key part of a rounded education for performers, composers and listeners of all kinds. An understanding of how written symbols relate to the elements of music, and having the skills to interpret and translate them into sounds, empowers us to communicate and experience music in a meaningful way. Without knowledge of notation it is impossible for classical musicians to access their repertoire with ease or to rehearse together; and this repertoire could not be heard at all had composers not been able to write it down. So, music theory is a very practical subject that is completely entwined with performance and composition. ABRSM’s Theory of Music exams give students opportunities to acquire: •      a knowledge of the notation of western music, including the signs and terminol­ ­ogy commonly employed •      a n understanding of fundamental musical elements such as intervals, keys, scales and chords   •      skill in constructing balanced rhythmic patterns or completing given melodic or harmonic structures •      an ability to apply theoretical knowledge and understanding to score analysis Candidates are assessed on their ability to identify, use and manipulate conventional musical symbols, to complete extracts and to answer questions relating to the elements of music according to the grade-by-grade parameters detailed on the following pages. Grade 5 as a prerequisite A longstanding ABRSM benchmark is that a pass at Grade 5 or above in Theory of Music must be obtained before candidates can enter for Grades 6, 7 or 8 Practical exams. We believe that a thorough understanding of the elements of music is essential for a full and satisfying performance at these higher grades. (Grade 5 in Practical Musicianship or any solo Jazz subject also fulfils this prerequisite.) Marking scheme Theory exams are marked out of a total of 100, with 66 marks required for a Pass, 80 for a Merit and 90 for a Distinction. Past papers Copies of the question papers set in ABRSM’s Theory exams for each of the preceding five years are available for purchase from music retailers and from www. abrsm.org/shop. Model answers for papers for the same period are also available.

PRACTICAL MUSICIANSHIP (Subject Code: 42) Musicianship is a broad concept that covers a complex range of musical abilities. For the purposes of this syllabus, it is loosely defined as the ability to ‘think in sound’. This occurs when a musician is able to produce music which they perceive internally and in the imagination, whether through playing by ear, singing, reading from notation, or through improvisation.   ABRSM’s Practical Musicianship exams give students opportunities to develop their ability to ‘think in sound’ and perform spontaneously. While the other graded exams focus on aspects of performance that are prepared in detail in advance, here the playing (or singing) is in response to immediate challenges and stimuli, presented both aurally and via notation. Grade by grade, the Practical Musicianship exams cover some of the key skills for the rounded musician: •      the ability to internalize music and to reproduce it •      interpreting written music with a minimum of preparation •      exploring the possibilities inherent in a short motif •      the ability to detect differences between what is heard and what is written   In developing their musicianship skills, students will be gaining the understanding as well as the expressive and interpretative skills needed to master the musical language of the repertoire they are learning. Grade 5 as a prerequisite A pass at Grade 5 or above in Practical Musicianship (or in Theory of Music or any solo Jazz subject) must be obtained before candidates can enter for Grades 6, 7 or 8 Practical exams. We believe that a thorough understanding of the elements of music is essential for a full and satisfying performance at these higher grades. Instruments Practical Musicianship exams are open to singers as well as instrumentalists perform­ing on any instrument(s) included in the current range of subjects featured in ABRSM’s syllabuses. Singing candidates will be expected to play certain parts of the exam on an instrument (either the piano provided or any other instrument of their choice). In the exam Approximately one minute of preparation time is allowed for the following tests: •      singing/playing at sight •      improvising (from Grade 4) •      transposing at sight •      realizing a figured bass For any test that requires a sung response, pitch rather than vocal quality is the object. The examiner will be happy to adapt to the vocal range of the candidate, whose responses may be sung to any vowel (or consonant followed by a vowel), hummed or whistled (and at a different octave, if appropriate). 96


Marking scheme The examiner will award an overall grading, rather than a mark, on the following basis: A Pass with Distinction B Pass with Merit C Pass F Failure to reach the standard required to pass Specimen tests Examples of the tests are given in Specimen Tests: Practical Musicianship and Musicianship in Practice, available for purchase from music retailers and from www. abrsm.org/shop. New syllabus A new Musicianship syllabus is planned, and may be introduced before the expiry of this syllabus booklet. For updates, see www.abrsm.org/exams.
