Diploma Scales =Where can I get the RCM Grade 9,10 and above Syllabus for Scales and Sight Reading?

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Question by Aurelia: Diploma Scales =Where can I get the RCM Grade 9,10 and above Syllabus for Scales and Sight Reading?
Where can I get RCM’s Grade 9,10,11 and 12 syllabus?
I want to look at the Aural, Scales and Sight reading Component.
I am currently doing the new syllabus for ATCL where its evaluation is 90% performance and 10% program notes.
I feel that the new syllabus is handicapped in terms of technique developement and I still need the old ATCL / Dip Ab / RCM syllabus for scales and arpeggios to push my finger technique and sight reading and ear training for overall musical development.
I don’t just want another certificate but overall technique and musicality.

I am currently doing ABRSM Grade 8 scales which I played for my exam at minim = 88. I am thinking to push my speed to 90 or 96 or more.
Arppegios – I improvised my Grade 8 Arppegios to play them in 3rds and 6ths.
I am also playing major scales in 3rds from Hanon in C, D, F, G, A, Major Double Octave scales ,and chromatic scales in 3rds and 6ths.

This is all so confusing,I feel that it is easier to have a specific exam syllabus to refer to as then I will know how far or how much to practise in the correct way and correct expected speed at this level. A booklet of diploma scales will be handy and much appreciated!

thanks a million!!!!!
