Key Skills at Premiere
What you'll learn at Premiere:
The Premiere exam lasts 10 minutes, during which you will play five Performance Pieces. There is a choice of six pieces in Let's Rock Bass and an additional three ensemble pieces at the back of the book. Candidates should choose five out of these nine pieces to play in the examination.
Unlike the later Grade exams, there are no Technical Exercises, Sight Reading, Ear Tests or General Musicianship Questions for the Premiere exam, and there are no Free Choice pieces for this level ... they start at Grade 1.
