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.

AMEB Trumpet Teachers’ Workshop

Teachers are invited to an online workshop to be presented by the Series 2 grade book consultant, Suzanne Wedding. In the workshop, Suzanne will discuss the repertoire contained in the books, with a focus on the techniques required by each piece.
