Just a quick question - I haven't listened to any but will do, isn't it one piece from list A, B, C and D and 2 extra list pieces? So 6 pieces in total? There's only 5 there unless you have another in the works? Sorry if this sounds obvious but I wouldn't like to rock up to my exam a tad unprepared. \:\)

I just checked the Syllabus, and it appears that you dont need extra list pieces for grade 8.. so thats that. I actually plan on doing grade 7 myself next year which I guess in a way means more work with doing 6 instead of 4.. but I guess it works out cause G8 is supposed to be that wee bit harder.

And yet when I see Beethovens Pathetique Op 13. mvmt 3 in the grade 7 syllabus - I beg to differ.. lol.

By the way, hows your technical work?
When I look at the requirements of G7 arpeggios needing E flat, A flat, C sharp and F sharp (major and minor) root, first and second inversions - at 76bpm, four notes per beat. Thats 24 different arpeggios all at that speed.. and thats just minimum tempo for a C grade. Sheesh! And I think grade 8 is likewise 80bpm for arpeggios and 104 for scales. Thats a fair bit of time perfecting scales and arpeggios.. and I guess if you aren't naturally inclined to want to prac them doing your exam is a huge incentive.

hey kylie. Only just read this post, so am a bit late, but did listen to your nocturne and it sounded wonderful! :p

Hope your exam went well. I too went through the whole AMEB exam process and they scared the crap out of me.
