New ABRSM Bowed Strings Syllabus 2015 - 2019

The Bowed Strings Syllabus 2016–2019 is published and the books are IN STOCK!

The new ABRSM string syllabus has been designed to inspire string players worldwide.

We have setup special links to help you find the music you need, direct from our home page.

There are completely new repertoire lists for Violin, around 80% of the Viola and Cello lists have been refreshed, and the Double Bass lists are unchanged.

Requirements for scales, sight-reading and aural tests stay the same, but the covers of the scales and sight-reading publications will change throughout 2015.


This syllabus will be valid in exams from January 2016. In the UK, the 2012–2015 syllabus can be used until the end of Period A 2016. All other countries can use it until 31 December 2016.
