ABRSM Grade 2 Scales

Here is a training book covering the scales and other technical exercises needed for Associated Board piano exams at Grade 2, from 2011. It covers all you need, but instead of giving the student options, I have chosen options for them, to keep it simple. Even so, this is a massive step up from Grade 1.

New things to learn are:
  • scales are now hands together;
  • chromatic scales;
  • arpeggios;
  • 4-note broken chords.
Please consult the syllabus for the exact requirements. I take no responsibility if you prepare the wrong scales for your exam!
