This book contains everything needed to prepare for the performance and
technical work components of a Trinity Electronic Keyboard Grade 4 exam in
2019-2022. All pieces have been composed or arranged specifically for the
keyboard, and encompass a wide range of styles – from classical favourites to
TV, film or show themes. The ‘own interpretation’ piece allows the candidate
to create a personal arrangement, choosing their own voices,style, keyboard
functions and interpretation. Also included are the scales, chord knowledge
and exercises that form the technical work component of the exam.
Demonstration recordings can be downloaded free.
