Rating Review
Customer Rating Obviously, this series of AB publications is a "must" for anyone preparing for a Grade 1-5 singing exam......this is a good selection of songs, covering a wide variety of styles. However, as a teacher I have 2 problems with all the books in the series. 1)Why does the book not tell you to which list - A,B or C - each song belongs? And 2) The piano accompaniments on the CDs accompanying the songs are actually quite hard to sing along to, even for an experienced musician, and they're only of use if the key suits the singer. Some of the keys chosen are likely to be problematic in some cases.

Customer Rating A little expensive but lots of song to choose from.

Customer Rating Really good book, if a little expensive. However, having the CD is very useful for practice purposes.

Customer Rating A good repertoire guide with very good language support. A lot of the songs are covered in other publications but it is convenient to have the Grade 3 songs in one book. I have never been an advocate of songs in exotic languages as a lot of singers cannot even sing in English so would not use Chinese etc for Grade 3 standard singers.

Customer Rating A useful resource.

Customer Rating These song books are full of a wide range of songs and the CD promises good support but doesn't quite deliver. It only provides the piano accompaniment and a second track with the words being said to help with pronunciation. The missing element, for me, is the song being sung, so that students can hear what it should sound like. ABRSM provide this for instrumental CDs, but fail to provide it here. I think they missed a trick!

Customer Rating It would help if the songs were arranged in lists A, B,and C. Personally I don't think the pronunciation guide is needed for English songs - having an alternative key could be useful (especially if you are teaching broken /breaking voices). Too many traditional songs (12) compared with Art Songs (20). Easy-to-read music and helpful information about each song.
