從2020年起,ABRSM全球考試將采用一年的考綱曲目重疊期。這意味著所有考生可沿用舊考綱曲目直至2020年12月31日 (全部曲目和配套測試必須出自同一版考綱)。



  • 從巴洛克和古典到搖擺、當代、爵士和現代的各種流派和風格。.
  • 獨奏、二重奏、帶伴奏和敲擊樂組合等多種曲目。
  • 更靈活、便利的敲擊樂評估方法,反映當代敲擊樂技能多元化的音樂趨勢和客觀現實。


全新敲擊樂考綱為學生帶來前所未有的靈活性,提供四種考試選項:學生可以專攻下列三種樂器的其中一種 – 小鼓,定音鼓或定音敲擊樂器 – 或者用全三種樂器演奏(敲擊樂組合)。各種樂器均含帶鋼琴和敲擊樂伴奏的曲目,以及敲擊樂組合曲目。
