Are you in music education?


Encore is the official collection of best-loved ABRSM piano exam pieces from Grades 1 to 8.

Book 1 features popular pieces previously set on ABRSM Grades 1 and 2. Have fun exploring timeless classics and modern favourites, like Hook’s Gavotte or the jazzy Vampire Blues. Plus, we’ve included background information and new ideas for exploring the music. Encore is perfect for:

  • Developing skills and technique between grades
  • Sourcing music for a concert or recital
  • Learning or playing for fun, away from the exam format
  • Adults returning to piano playing, looking for approachable repertoire they’ll recognise

For teachers, we’ve made sure that the content is perfectly balanced at every level. For quick reference, each piece has a note highlighting skills to focus on. Encore is packed full of music that will:

  • Motivate students – all the pieces have been chosen for their ongoing popular appeal
  • Form a bank of rich content, so you can pick and choose pieces to help each student improve
  • Introduce new skills and techniques, to prepare exam candidates for the next level

Whether you’re working through our exams, playing informally, or planning a performance, Encore is full of music you’ll want to play again and again!
