The repertoire strikes a balance between a radical redesign and a recognisable structure, adhering to four key principles: championing ethnically diverse composers, representing genders, acknowledging the history and tradition of violin pedagogy, and enabling students to feel comfortable studying music in a popular and classical environment.
RSL are renowned for their market-leading Rockschool examinations and comprehensive grade books. The RSL Classical Violin syllabus books are beautifully presented, each containing everything that a student would need to prepare for their RSL exam: ten repertoire pieces drawn from a diverse selection of composers, technical exercises, and examples of supporting tests including sight-reading (or optional improvisation & interpretation tests), ear tests and general musicianship questions.
