Has anybody any thoughts on the TG grade 3 piano pieces for 2012-2014?
My first look through the pieces in the book has left me less than impressed.
The books listed for the alternatives are ones I don't have but I'm going to see if any are in books I do have....unless anybody has already found some in other books....
Compared with the AB grade 3 and with a 10 year old boy pianist in mind, we're going to have a go at Trinity, because frankly the pieces (even those in the book) look more pupil-friendly. I have had a couple of pupils go through the current AB grade 3 pieces, and I have an older girl doing them at the moment, but I find them rather uninspiring. [I find there's usually one grade that leaves a bit to be desired.]
I haven't found any of the alternative pieces, and I'm not really relishing spending lots of money on alternatives.
I enquired in our local music shop and was told there wasn't much call for the books so they didn't have them in stock. So how can you look at the books to see if you want to buy them, if they haven't got them on the shelf? No wonder there's "no demand"
