ABRSM Piano Grade 1 Pieces

After a brief break from practise, I'm back into it again with a new approach. No scales or broken chords or any other kind of warm up. I do a session of Dance of the Hours one day, and The Poacher the next, just playing them right through, over and over. It's the practise-until-you-can't-get-it-wrong approach. Still haven't settled on the 3rd piece yet. The Spring (Period A) of 2017 is my last opportunity to use the 2015-16 syllabus. Entry date is 20th January, and the exam is at some time between early March and early April. 4 months. Which should be fine if I keep practising.
