15 example exercises

The 15 exercises in this ABRSM Grade 8 Piano Sight-Reading book are all typical examples of what you will encounter in your ABRSM grade 8 piano exam, which is a piece of around a page in length, in the same time and key signatures as Grade 7 (4/4, 3/4, 2/4, 3/8, 6/8, 9/8, 5/4, 5/8, 7/8 or 7/4 inkeys up to 4 sharps/flats (major and minor)) with the addition of 12/8 and B and Db majors, and some three-part chords in either hand, spread chords and simple ornaments.
