Hello, can anyone please tell me what would be the ABRSM grade for Piano adventures 3B. I am teaching my daughter my self and she has not sat an exam so far but would like to get grading from ABRSM. We have complete 3B of the whole set of Faber Piano adventures. Many thanks,

I would say the pieces are around grade 1 standard.

Generally if we're going for grade 1 I would move from 2b onto the Faber's Piano Literature series or Music Thro Time (or run easier examples from piano lit alongside 2b) so I'd be likely to go for 3A or 3B either for enjoyment and consolidation after grade 1 or leading up to g2.

Like jpiano I tend to use these books for light relief beween grades.  The style is rather different from the average ABRSM Grade 1 piece as the PA pieces tend to use a lot of patterning -- so can be learnt fairly quickly.  I would suggest that your daughter should try some pieces from the AB books such as Encore 1 or Piano Mix 1 if you want to see if she is ready to prepare for an exam.
