RSL Awards launch new RSL Classical Violin syllabus

6th October 2021

RSL Classical Violin is out now!

RSL Awards is delighted to announce the launch of its new RSL Classical Violin syllabus. With works by female and male composers from the global majority across Classical, Classical Crossover, Jazz and Pop, RSL Awards believe this to be an exciting, engaging and relevant syllabus for teachers to use with their emerging violinists.

All repertoire comes with exemplar audio, backing track and a piano score enabling a flexible approach to teaching, students’ learning and the whole exam experience. The two pop tracks at each grade come with specially arranged piano or full band backing tracks, while the Free Choice Piece option across both our Performance Certificate and Full Grade Exam enables students to curate an exam which extends and develops their musical mastery.

The grade books are available to buy over on the RSL Awards website alongside free downloadable syllabus specification and FAQs here.
