ABRSM TUNED PERSUSSION
 
Anyone done the ABRSM tuned percussion grades?

I have the option of hiring a Vibraphone so amy consider studying it. Want to learn how to read music too. Have done rockschool grade 8 drums - enjoyed it - but now looking for something more challenging.

Can I ask how you passed a Grade 8 exam without being able to read music?

As to your question, yeah, vibes is good, but while you're at it, go out and play lots.

Can sight read drum music, want to learn to site read the treble and bass cleff too. Can do it on basic level.

And as for going out and playing lots, im already doing that. Improvise and perform live regularly - just want to up my standard a bit by taking on a new challenge. I love the sound of the vibraphone!

Do you have any info/ experiences about ABRSM syllabus you can share?
