Grade 5 Syllabus update from ABRSM


Anything new in ABRSM 2023?

With the publication of the new 2023 & 2024 syllabus, ABRSM has expanded the Grade 5 repertoire list to 39 pieces.

It still keeps a total of 21 pieces from the former 2021 & 2022 syllabus. On the other hand, the Grade 5 piano exam book has completely been changed to included 9 new exam pieces to choose from.


How long does the ABRSM 2023 syllabus last?

Students will be allowed to present pieces from the new 2023 & 2024 syllabus from 1 January 2023. The syllabus is set to expire on 31 December 2024. However, ABRSM concedes a year extension (called overlap period) in which students can still play pieces from this syllabus until 31 December 2025.

    Does the ABRSM 2021 Syllabus ever expire?

    The 2021 & 2022 syllabus is set to expire on 31 December 2022. Nonetheless, ABRSM offers an overlap period where students can still perform their selection of pieces from this syllabus up to 31 December 2023.

    Is Grade 5 Music Theory mandatory?

    Learning music theory has so many benefis that it shouln’t be ignored for those wanting to go beyong grade 5. Did you know ABRSM does not allow to take grade 6+ practical exams until passing a grade 5 music theory exam? That’s right!

    By experience, this is often a grade students begin with as music theory can sometimes be left behind due to a lack of time during their instrument lessons.

    But there’s no need to panic! We have thoroughly created 100+ animated video lessons on this Grade 5 music theory course to help you catch up with your music theory.

    Our first and foremost goal is to strengthen our students’ passion for music, whether they’re beginners or those more advanced.
    We believe that the process of learning an instrument should be enjoyable, exciting and engaging, so we let the journey itself become as crucial as the final outcome.
