Current popular publications used for beginner and elementary piano students include ABRSM Piano Star Books 1-3, along with Chester's Easiest Piano Course Book 1 by Carol Barratt (aimed at very young learners) and the 'introduction to reading music' and 'beginner piano exercise' worksheets created by Dulwich Piano Lessons.
Following the ABRSM Prep Test and Grade 1 exam, pupils explore a variety of established publications including For Children by Bartok and The Young Pianist's Repertoire (selected by Fanny Waterman and Marion Harewood), plus ABRSM anthologies including Encore, Piano Mix, A Keyboard Anthology and the Spectrum series which feature much-loved pieces from the piano repertory alongside modern music and works by living composers.
All students of Grade 1 level upwards are expected to work regularly at sight-reading skills using the Improve your sight-reading! series (published by Faber Music) as an additional resource to the familiar ABRSM Specimen Sight-Reading Tests books for the relevant grade.
In addition to sight-reading tests and quick studies, all students of ABRSM Prep Test level upwards are taught scales, broken chords and arpeggios.
