Welcome to the playback of our recent Virtual RSL On Tour webinar: "An introduction to Rockschool Piano and Keys", and, "Teaching Technical Piano Skills Through Performing".
An Introduction to Piano & Keys Webinar
This webinar introduces teachers to the benchmarked levels of progression students can expect to reach as they engage with our Rockschool Piano and Rockschool Keys graded exam materials. We look at specific examples of the repertoire at Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Level; provide explanations of the assessment criteria and our new digital marksheets; and highlight how the grade system maps across to qualifications in the classroom. We also provide information on the different ways students can take exams with Rockschool in your region and territory.
Teaching Technical Piano Skills Through Performing
This webinar will look at the Piano grades (Debut – Grade 8) and give examples of how to approach the grades in an engaging way to help students develop both their technical mastery and creative expression. We will highlight the relationship between the technical exercises and the performance pieces contained in the graded exam book and look at how particular scales, arpeggios, chords and rhythmic elements support the development of specific pieces. We will also look at how our interactive practice tool, Replay, can be used in lessons as an effective teaching tool.
Rockschool Piano seeks to both educate the modern pianist, and validate the instrument as an essential tool in the ever-evolving world of popular music.
Rockschool Keys contains comprehensive, keyboard-specific arrangements, that utilise varied levels of sound manipulation, patch switching, layers and splits.
