The new 2019 AMEB Piano syllabus features a comprehensive review of the Manual Lists and a new range of Series 18 grade books, handbooks and recordings.

Technical Work includes new scale and arpeggio sequencing across all grades and specially-composed exercises to support and complement the traditional technical content, as published in Piano Technical work Level 1(2018) and Piano Technical work Level 2 (2018).

The workshop will assist teachers to become familiar with the new Technical Work requirements and will introduce some of the less-familiar repertoire published in Series 18.

Additionally, teachers will have an opportunity to tailor the workshop content to their specific needs, and may submit requests for support on pedagogical, technical or stylistic issues relating to works published in Series 18 or Series 17.
