I'm afraid I don't know anything about grade 3 piano (therefore making this post essentially redundant) but I just wanted to say, welcome to the forums! Hope you like it here
Oh that's alright
I was just wondering if there was anybody who had any knowledge of it. But thank you for your best wishes
I have the new pieces for my grade 3. I chose the Beethoven Bagatelle, Enigma Theme and Northern Lights. All alternate pieces lol, I wasn't over keen on many others to be honest!
interesting. I was looking at Tanaka's Northern Lights, but I must say the 3 that in the end particularly stood out for me were all in the selected piano exam pieces!
I've decided on A1 Prelude in C B1 Sad Song C3 Both Sides Now. I felt the Prelude would give me a little challenge, especially near the end where I suppose you would need to control with the semi quaver notes in quick succession. The Sad Song's articulation really appealed to me, and the Both Sides Now arrangement is expressive and would be a good challenge seeing as I played a piece similar to it's type in Grade 1 [less difficult, obviously
] and got a 26, which I wanted to push up to a 27. Great to hear your pieces! Would love to hear how you do in the exam
all the best...

Hi and welcome to the forums!
I will be entering grade 3 in June, having scraped a pass at grade 2 last year. Haven't seen the exam book yet, so can't say what I'll be going for.
do let me know how you do in your exam or any pieces you chose. Refer to my previous reply to aesir22 if you'd like to know how I came to choose my pieces. Good luck
