Trinity’s orchestral percussion exams cover the full-range of orchestral instruments: tuned percussion, snare drum and timpani – either in a combined orchestral percussion exam or as individual disciplines. The new repertoire lists include a wide range of styles to appeal to all musical tastes and ensure that there are pieces that students will enjoy learning and performing.
At all grades, candidates choose any two pieces and one study from the list in the syllabus. As an alternative to one of their two pieces, candidates may perform their own composition, using the suggested features given in the syllabus.
