Where can i find the RCM level 10 technical test sheet?
« on: June 29, 2021, 02:06:24 AM »
Hi everyone. I found that unlike Celebration Series RCM level 8,which has a technical requirement book, not such thing could be found in Celebration Series RCM level 10 sets. So how am I gonna prepare for my level 10 technical tests which are listed in pianosyllabus? Anyone knows where I can find them? I am self-taught.

The Technical Requirements set of books stops at level 8. 

If you have done previous RCM exams, you would already have a good idea of the kind of material to expect.  The syllabus contains all the information needed.  The technique books are just more verbose at spelling things out.  If you look at page 102 in the syllabus, examples of the patterns are given, all you need to do is play the pattern in the appropriate key. 

There was a time in previous versions of the RCM syllabus where the technical requirements  for level 10 were: almost everything, in all keys.  The contents of The Royal Conservatory of Music Piano Technique Book was basically the guide for level 10.  Thankfully things are more reasonable with the current syllabus. 

If you want your technical elements written out, look at getting the following book.  It can be used as a reference for the RCM technical elements at any level.

Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

Thank you Quantum for your advice.

I found a similar book Brown Scale Book, which includes all the scales,chords etc.

I also agree it would be a good idea to play out according to the syllabus and get familar with all the key signature. Therefore, it will benefit reciting.
