Invitation – Compositions

Composers are invited to submit compositions for possible inclusion in the RIAM’s Piano Albums from Elementary Grade to Grade V.

Successful compositions will be selected on the basis of:

(i) suitability of the submission for the appropriate technical development of each grade for the RIAM Local Centre piano syllabus

(ii) interest and appeal of the composition, especially for the young pianist.

For earlier grades (up to Grade I) applicants may consider arranging familiar tunes suitable for younger players.

Interested composers should refer to a brief description of the technical standards, as well as the fee scale and other requirements.

Compositions should be formatted in either Finale or Sibelius and submitted by Friday, 15 September 2017 in hard copy to the Senior Examiners  or emailed (in pdf format) to
