The New Trinity Guildhall Woodwind Syllabus 2012

The new Trinity Guildhall Woodwind Syllabus 2012 is out this week, with new exam lists for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, saxophone and recorder.

They’ve also published two brand new series of books for flute, clarinet and saxophone which will be included on the exam lists: ‘Musical Moments’ is a series of progressive repertoire books, in 5 volumes for each instrument, featuring newly-composed pieces by leading educational composers, plus new arrangements of popular and less well-known repertoire. ‘Mosaics’ is a series of unaccompanied repertoire books containing newly composed solo pieces by Mike Mower and James Rae. As well as addressing specific areas of technique development, these books offer attractive, stand-alone repertoire for beginner to advanced standard players. They’re published in two volumes for each instrument: Book 1 covers Initial-Grade 5 and Book 2 covers Grades 6-8. All the books are listed on the website.
