Hi,

I need to buy Grade 2 book for Piano and as they're not cheap. Please advise if I can buy 2nd hand book instead of brand new ones in order to save costs as I'm not sure if the book are revised yearly.

Also, please share places where I can get music books at cheaper price.

Thanks!

They have just changed the syllabus for 2009/2010 so it will be good for up to 2011. The old 2007/2008 can be used up to 2009 this year only.

If you need the grade 2 for Aug/Sep 09 exam, then the 2007/2008 can be used otherwise if the exam is next year, you will have to use the 2009/2010 syllabus.

If you want for this year I have the exam book and also the CD.
Both to sell at $7. (original $7+13=$20) Pls PM me if you are keen.

Hi KS2me,

Thanks for your reply.

I need it for next year as the teacher claims that Exam is in March 2010? He just pass his Grade 1 exam this year. Let me check with his teacher and come back to you by tomorrow, okay?

Cheers,

Sure, not a problem at all.

If March next year, most likely you have to buy the new syllabus 2009/2010 book. The new syllabus has 2 versions, one without CD and one with CD. If you do not need the CD, i.e. teacher is playing for your child first to listen to the tune, then it will be more cost effective to buy the non-CD version, not forgetting there are 2 other books to buy.

HTHs. :D

Hi,

Thanks for all the response.

Honestly, I have no idea what books I need to get as yet. I've sms the music teacher but she said she's overseas and will let me know when I see her this Sunday.

I'll get back to you then.

Thanks again,
