ABRSM is pleased to support the Aldeburgh Music and Britten–Pears Foundation Grade 1 Piano Challenge alongside Trinity College London!

All you have to do is achieve your Grade 1 by the end of 2016 - one special incentive for early starters being the prospect of playing in the Grade 1 Extravaganza at the Aldeburgh Festival if you succeed.

How long do I need?

On average, people undertaking this kind of challenge give themselves about six months to achieve the Grade 1 standard, but you can be entirely flexible depending on your commitments and confidence. The challenge will run until the end of 2016!
