New Trumpet Level 2 grade books

The AMEB Trumpet Series 2 grade books have been expanded to include Grades 5 and 6. The works featured in Trumpet Series 2 Grade 5 and Trumpet Series 2 Grade 6 will be added to the repertoire section of the current Trumpet syllabus.  (No works have been removed). Exciting new pieces provide ample technical and skill-building opportunities for developing trumpeters. Ensemble playing and practice opportunities are encouraged through the inclusion of duets.

Additional orchestral excerpts for Grades 5 and 6 are included in the new publications.

A teachers’ workshop was presented online by the Series 2 grade book consultant, Suzanne Wedding on Sunday 12 February. In the workshop, Suzanne discussed the repertoire contained in the books, and focused on the techniques required in each piece.
