Early Keyboard

ALL classes are Own Choice

NB These instruments are frequently played by keen amateurs including LATE STARTERS/RESTARTERS and others who play purely for pleasure.

We wish to offer the opportunity for you to play in a relaxed atmosphere whilst obtaining high quality professional adjudication, so we shall endeavour to cater for these entries to take place in late afternoon/early evening (but if you have any other preferences please state so on entry form).

Please see the Guidance here.

A copy of your music must be available for the adjudicator. Bring your own instrument.

Sometimes Levels are given rather than grades. For details please click here
