Repertorie indicated in the list below may be used for examinations during the crossover period (up to end of August 2023). Beyond this time, these pieces are no longer recognized as exam-qualifying pieces in accordance to Royal Conservatory of Music. The content is sourced from the RCM 2015 and 2022 Piano Syllabus PDFs and may be subject to accuracy issues – always verify the findings and check with RCM Examination Services if in doubt.
Browse through the list by selecting the appropriate grade. In the List column where indicated “Print” means the piece appeared in the 2015 Celebration Series (5th Ed).
Stats for nerds
There is a significant increase of repertoire introduced in Prep B, Grades 9 and 10 selection compared to the 2015 syllabus, with the other grades having minor adjustments. In the grades covered in this post, there are 2417 pieces listed in 2022 Syllabus vs 2121 pieces in the older 2015 syllabus. This comparison chart has some limitations:
- ARCT and LRCM pieces are not covered (will be in another post)
- Popular Selections are not included due to the ever-changing list, and that 2022 Popular Selections has not been released yet
- List repertoire where the piece is listed, but the required movements/selections within the piece has changed may be double-counted (but this scenario is extremely low)
