Australian music in AMEB's new Piano Syllabus

The newly revised AMEB Piano Syllabus is out and features works by many AMC-represented composers, including Margaret Brandman, Andrew Ford, Miriam Hyde, Rosalind Carlson, Sonny Chua, John Peterson, Larry Sitsky, Carl Vine, Elissa Milne, and others. Copies of the syllabus are available from music retailers, and you can also download the manual digitally from AMEB's online shop.
