Hi, I am planning to take the DipABRSM (piano) in a year's time.I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions regarding the pieces. I took my grade 8 way back in high school and for the last 7 years haven't taken any exams.Am planning to take the exam by being self taught(hope it won't be too difficult),since I am a Ph.D. student and don't have time for lessons!Does anyone know what the scales for the exams are?I'm assuming everything!

I don't think there are ANY scales for the DipABRSM! I'm not 100% sure as regards piano, but I had one of my recorder pupils taking it last year and there were certainly no scales for that - just a recital, quick study and viva.

Check the online syllabus for the requirements.

Hi, all the pieces and requirements are in the syllabus which is available on this site. There are no scales but you do need to do a Viva Voce which requires in depth knowledge of the pieces, composers and the periods they are taken from. Its really not something I would want to tackle without a teachers help.
Best of luck
