Trinity College London- Music Diploma Updates (Performance Diploma Syllabus)

News: Trinity College London- Music Diplomas (Performance Diploma Syllabus)

The new 2019 Trinity Performance Diplomas syllabus will be published on 18 October 2018.

The new syllabus features the majority of the pieces from the current 2009-2018 syllabus*, which means candidates can continue to prepare for their examination whichever date they choose. We have also added a wealth of new pieces that we know candidates will want to play and teachers want to teach. In addition the new syllabus features revised written programme requirements at ATCL and LTCL levels, and updated assessment criteria providing more detailed guidance on how exams are marked. Performance requirements, including own-choice options, will remain largely unchanged. Further details about syllabus changes will be released soon.

The 2009-2018 syllabus will be extended until 31 July 2019. The new syllabus will be used from 1 August 2019 onwards.

Please note that there will be no overlap between syllabuses, so all exams from 1 August 2019 onwards will follow the 2019 syllabus.

*A small number of existing pieces from the 2009-2018 syllabus are being removed.

PIANO TECHNIQUE TRANSFORMATION INTENSIVE COURSE

NEW COURSE 2017: PIANO TECHNIQUE TRANSFORMATION INTENSIVE COURSE

This is going to be the BEST course I am going to teach, and you are going to take, ever (well until the next best one for sure :D).

I will “warn” anyone before signing up for this course, that you will get amazing result after completing it. BUT, there is a catch: 

You must be COMMITTED to doing all the work and all the thinking while maintaining willpower during the whole course, RIGHT FROM THE START (Actually, BEFORE you start).

You must be DEDICATED TO YOURSELF when you take this course. You take it because you truly want to transform your piano playing (and subsequently your teaching too if you are a piano teacher) forever completely for the better. 

I can even promise you on that one.

But only if you really make it happen for yourself. I can’t do it for you. 

I will however do everything to help you achieve your goal. 

So think seriously about it before you sign up, because it is going to take hard work, I don’t mean all the heavy lifting and muscle strain (quite the opposite: you are going to feel LIGHT and EFFORTLESS and EASY), I mean tough mental work, and keep your cool and keep working through the whole process.

If you are that kind of student, then I am the kind of teacher you have been looking for. 

See you soon!

Course duration: 10 weeks

Course module: group or individual program

Group class (3-5 student small group setting) starts in February 2017. Early bird special deadline: January 21, 2017.

This is a ten-week course: it is the same for individual course (schedule arranged accordingly to meet individual candidate’s need). It focuses primarily on transforming candidate’s existing piano technique, therefore it is NOT a diploma exam preparation program. If you are interested in diploma exam prep course, please contact us for further information.
