The harp syllabus 2014-2020 from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland offers a great choice of tunes for your repertoire and will enable you to create a programme for the RCS Traditional Music Exams or SQA exams, ceilidhs, mods and concerts. The pieces were selected by Patsy Seddon in consultation with Christine Martin and Gillian Fleetwood and are from many well known players, teachers and arrangers of Scottish harp music.
For the Grade 2 harp syllabus 2014-2020, this offers you a choice of tunes to start you on your way to a rich and varied repertoire. Where appropriate, tunes in this volume have been edited for guidance purposes.
Syllabuses, repertoires and entry guidelines can be viewed at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland website.
The arrangements represent the technical standard to be expected at the grade, and as such should be adhered to by candidates when performing in the exam.
