Ballade to appear on Trinity College Grade 7 Jazz Sax syllabus

(July 24, 2014)

Ballade gr 7

I'm delighted to let you know that my Ballade (Eb or Bb Saxophone, & Piano, & CD included) is to be featured on new Trinity College Jazz exams syllabus for 2015 - 2016 at Grade 7. It is listed in both the Eb and Bb sax options and remember the book includes a universal saxophone part, with two piano accompaniment parts. A CD is also included with a full Alto sax and piano demonstration track, plus two backing tracks (one for Eb saxes, the other for Bb saxes).

Ballade joins one of my other works; Songs for Claire, whose third movement, Flying free is on the grade 4 Jazz saxophone lists for both Eb and Bb saxes. Ballade is available from,, and all good sheet music suppliers. Click on the book image above to be directed to the sales page.

Trinity College (formerly known as Trinity Guildhall) offer graded music exams up to grade 8, with Diploma's available afterwards. Unlike ABRSM, their Jazz exams extend all they wat to grade 8 (ABRSM currently only offer grades 1-5 in Jazz) and offer options in supporting tests which for many students can be preferable as they can use their strengths. There is also an option to scrap the scales part entirely, but I didn't tell you that!..... ;D
