ABRSM Grade 8 Music Exam: Comprehensive Aural Test Course

I know a lot of ABRSM grade 8 music exam students have trouble with their aural test preparation – they are really worried about taking this test and don’t know what to listen to and how to prepare for it!

Fear no more! I have decided to create a comprehensive aural test course specifically for ABRSM grade 8 purpose. And since it’s the same for ALL music instruments, it benefits every candidate taking the grade 8 music exam (not just piano students!).

In this course, I will teach you step by step – with a lot of detailed explanation and examples! – on how to listen to the music elements and know how to  answer each part of the aural test accordingly, so that you as a grade 8 music exam candidate won’t be lost again! I know how frustrating it is to try to listen to the chords and cadences, or what exactly to talk about in terms of music features and styles! With proper training and guidance, I am sure you would feel confident in taking your grade 8 aural test!

The comprehensive grade 8 aural test course covers ALL aspects of the standardized test. I will definitely spend more time on A because I can see that’s the hardest part for most candidates judging from years of experience preparing students for the grade 8 music exam! But I still cover all parts of the test so you won’t be lost with Part D for example when it comes to talking about music you’ve never heard of before! When you know what you should be listening to though, you will have confidence in taking the grade 8 aural test like you’ve never had before!

The course has 10 lessons in total including 2 mock tests. You will get access to the course via phone or computer anytime you want with a unique login.

 

You can now gain access to the course by subscribing to our membership plan or on our online learning platform.

 

 

How does an online piano lesson work ?

Hello everyone, this is Teresa Wong.  

Today I want to explain to you how online piano lessons work. In fact it is very simple.  

First, you need three tools.  

The first tool is your piano.

The second tool is your phone or computer: this way we can see each other online.  

The third tool is a good internet connection.  There is a fourth tool which is microphone, but it’s not an compulsory item.

Let me now tell you how you can set up for your online piano lessons.  

First of all, you need to sit in front of your piano.  Place your phone or computer next to the piano. The best position is that I can see your hands (and forearms) at the keyboard.  

You can use any online video chat app like WeChat, facetime, Skype, whatsapp.  Here you can see me and my piano. This is how I show how to improve my piano performance. If you have any questions about online piano lessons, simulation tests or intensive exam improvement programs, please leave a message or email me. See you next time!

 

Honoring Music Teaching

Teaching is a service to others.

Teachers are the guides, to shed light for their students on the path of knowledge and learning, with wisdom, insight, compassion, patience and empathy.

Teachers pass their knowledge, skills and information, their ways of learning and problem solving to their disciples, so that they can adapt, modify and create their own principles and methods to apply wisely for their own learning and skills. It’s the kind of flexible and smart principle that helps one to apply in different situations accordingly, instead of a cookie cutter, one size fit all rigid method that can be used in only one fixed situation.

I have the privilege to have learnt from great masters and teachers, and the pleasure to have passed my knowledge to my wonderful students of many over the past one and a half decade. I am also grateful to have this platform to share it with you my readers here. I hope you have all learnt something useful and impactful, something that lasts and is applicable in many ways, which would be the definition of true knowledge.

As for the aspiring music teachers, I hope you have mustered all your courage, your passion as well as your patience, when you are just starting out and at times feeling frustrated, exhausted and simply, lost. Keep up with your great work, keep on with your love for music and teaching, I’m here to support you.
