Please read through the following page if you’re thinking of performing a piece of repertoire not published by Rockschool in its Piano pack.
This checklist has been devised to help you assess whether or not the repertoire you have chosen to play meets the criteria established for performance pieces in the grade.

If you are still in any doubt, please email a copy of your notated part to firstname.lastname@example.org.
