Practical Exams Update – South Africa
We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we have made the following changes to our South Africa exams for the remainder of the year:
Please note, our ability to accept bookings and hold exams continue to be conditional on the current restrictions being lifted. We will provide an update to customers as soon as we can. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course.
At all grades, candidates for Trumpet, Cornet, Flugelhorn have the option of playing one tune on either of the two other instruments.
All tunes set for Grades 4 and 5 are to be found in the AB Real Books. Lead sheets and piano accompaniments for arrangements from the AB Real Books are also available to purchase from Allegro Music and a selection is available to purchase via download.
Tunes set for the exams may alternatively be accompanied by playalong tracks provided on the Grades 4 and 5 CDs.
