Performance Grades: Booking for June Performance Grades is open now until 13 May.

Performance Grade exams

We are now offering Performance Grade exams every month. Please check here for dates and fees. We are extending the introductory 15% discount for these exams so that it applies to all remotely-assessed Performance Grade and ARSM exams in 2021. Just enter code ABPG15NZ when you book. Please also read our terms and conditions here.

Performance Grades discount: system error

We currently have an error in our systems relating to discount codes. When you add the code your order summary will show that 15% has been added to the total, not taken away. However, the 15% discount will be applied to your booking and the correct total will appear at the top of the next screen before you pay. We're working to fix this and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Grade 5 Music Theory waiver (not applicable in the UK & Ireland)

We are extending our Grade 5 Music Theory waiver until 23 May 2021. This means that candidates with a Grade 6 to 8 Performance Grade exam submission date up to and including 23 May can take their exam without first passing Grade 5 Music Theory. We are making this exceptional arrangement to allow candidates who have been unable to take an exam in recent months to progress with their learning. From 24 May, the Grade 5 Music Theory requirement will return. For exam dates/exam submission dates after 23 May, all candidates taking a Grade 6 to 8 Performance or Practical Grade must first pass Grade 5 Music Theory.

欢迎使用Speedshifter

Speedshifter是ABRSM推出的练习工具,让您能够在不改变音高的情况下,随意调整音频速度!

只需加载乐曲,转动速度盘来减慢或加快速度——音高将保持不变。

什么是ABRSM的Speedshifter?

Speedshifter是一款用于Windows和Mac电脑的免费桌面应用程序,也是用于iOS和Android手机及平板电脑设备的应用程序。兼容移动设备的用户可下载Speedshifter的免费精简版进行试用(回放时间仅限一分钟),或下载与桌面版功能相当的完整付费版。

Speedshifter能够将最常见兼容音频文件类型的音乐速度减慢。按照下载链接、安装相关桌面应用程序,或阅读有关iOS及Android应用程序的更多信息。

如何使用Speedshifter?

Speedshifter让学生能在放慢速度的伴奏下演奏或演唱,从中受益。它可用于课堂,或者学生自己练习。

Speedshifter会改变音频的速度,因此能够完整保存乐曲速度的任何波动。这确保了在许多情况下,Speedshifter能够比节拍器提供更多的慢速音乐练习方法。

Speedshifter包含4个附加功能,这些功能对课堂学习和课后练习都很有用:

循环点

Speedshifter内置循环功能,让用户可以重复播放乐曲的某个部分来练习。只需将左右滑块拖动到想要的起点和终点,Speedshifter就会重复播放所选部分。

算速度

Speedshifter除了ABRSM的音频外,还可以与任何CD或MP3一起使用。当您第一次加载一个新乐曲时,Speedshifter会让您随着乐曲敲击几小节,以便找出乐曲的速度。这让Speedshifter能够把乐曲放到速度盘上。当您需要快速确定一首乐曲的速度时,这一功能也非常有用。如果您登录了Speedshifter,这个速度会被保存以备下次加载同一首乐曲时使用。

变音高

尽管Speedshifter能够在不改变音高的情况下改变速度,调整音高仍然是可以做到的。音高可以按半音为一级来调节,最大范围可以升或降小三度。这对于声乐学生尤有益处,特别是与 ABRSM Songbook 系列丛书的光盘配合使用时。.

调音准

开始使用Speedshifter之前,您可以选一个乐器来奏出A音(440hz)以便为您的乐器调音,您可以选合成器音色、单簧管、小号、大提琴,甚至ABRSM录音里用到的钢琴。
