Practical Session 2 Update – Jordan

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be postponing the entry period for Session 2 Practical exams and we will provide an update about the exams scheduled for November - December as soon as we can.

We will provide updates about future exams sessions as soon as we can and our Representative will provide further guidance in due course.

We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

Up Sticks by Clive Malabar

Up Sticks appears in the ABRSM Percussion Syllabus at Grade 7. Clive Malabar, the composer, began the piece by improvising a few rhythms and incorporating different sounds using the sticks and various parts of the drum. The finished piece contains elements of jazz/funk with syncopations and uneven time signatures such as 7/8.

There should be an improvised feel to the piece but with an underlying groove throughout and a sense of fun and exuberance! Have you played this piece or another Snare Drum piece from Percussion Syllabus? Let us know by sending an email to [email protected]
