  • *Grades 10-8: Registration for accompaniment
    Tones are assigned to all keys on the upper keyboard, lower keyboard, and bass.
    This allows candidates to play either “upper and lower keyboards” or “lower keyboard only” when they perform with both hands.
    During the examination, the tone of the melody played by the examiner will be easy for the candidate to hear.
    Please note that this may be different to the registration set for the upper keyboard.
