Exploring The 2014 ABRSM Flute Syllabus: Grades 1 to 3

The publication of a new ABRSM syllabus is about as big an event as it gets in the publishing world these days, and having a piece set for grades 1-3 will generate a great deal of interest. The two parts of the listing (the AB books themselves and the extra set repertoire) will represent a large part of the material used by many teachers over the next four years, so it is fascinating to see what we have in store and how we can make it work for us.
