The Leading Note Guide to RCM Graded Materials for Piano

RCM Piano Syllabus (2015)In order to complete an RCM level in piano, students should be prepared for four components: Repertoire, Studies, Technique and Ear Training. This guide will help you determine which books will be useful to complete your level. Detailed information about each level can be found in the RCM Piano Syllabus (2015 Edition). Students and teachers are responsible for verifying all repertoire selections with the lists in the syllabus. The following is a guide only.

 

Beginning at Level 1, students may substitute one study requirement with an approved selection from the RCM Popular Selections List (2015 Edition). Consult the Syllabus for more information.

Beginning at Level 5, students must also complete the corresponding Theory and History Co-requisites (although RCM now provide theory books for all levels). Information about these separate requirements can be found in the RCM Theory Syllabus (2009 Edition).

      Hi Mélina,
      Thanks for your inquiry! We will order the Glee Piano Solo book for you (should arrive by the end of this week) and have set aside “Imagine”. You are welcome to pick this up now or wait until the Glee book has arrived. We’ll be in touch as soon as it arrives.
      Thanks again!
      Sheilah
