Launceston GB Intermediate Level Pianist
May be used as a companion to Book III, ABRSM Aural Training in Practice and is useful for those preparing for the Aural requirement of Grades 7 & 8 practical exams.
Whilst the academic rigour of this book is a welcome and essential element, it may prove a little challenging for some students.
