The Rockschool Keyboard syllabus is an essential resource for contemporary pianists and keyboard players. Created with the modern musician in mind, it equips all aspiring keyboard players with the knowledge needed to confidently perform within the dynamic world of popular music.

Ability to Specialise

The tracks featured at each Grade are split into three keyboard-specific and three piano-specific hit tunes. We want you to plot your stylistic specialism, helping you to develop an in-depth understanding of the type of music that appeals to you most, whether that’s a particular genre, keyboard-specific sound manipulation or developing traditional pianistic techniques.

Keyboard Specific Repertoire

The Rockschool Keys Grades feature a collection of meticulously researched and suitably arranged hit tunes from the world’s greatest artists, films and musicals. The tracks have been devised for students to learn through the music they love with repertoire arranged and benchmarked with the key technical skills required at each Grade. These keyboard-specific arrangements utilise varied levels of sound manipulation, patch switching, layers and splits.

The Rockschool keyboard repertoire provides students with an expansive song choice, from a diverse range of genres, including tracks from Ariana Grande, Chvrches, Michael Jackson, Kate Bush, Stevie Wonder, Tori Amos, Eurythmics, Snarky Puppy, Pirates of the Caribbean, Schindler’s List and and many, many more.
