Attention all music teachers, music students, parents, examiners. The bulk of the AMEB syllabus manual lists from Grade 4 upwards are now available on the State Library website. A click on a link will take you through to our own catalogue listing of the piece – you don’t even have to use the catalogue. All the searching has been done for you. All the music is available for generous loan periods. Check it out here http://www.slwa.wa.gov.au/find/music_performing_arts/ameb_music
We are currently trialling Music Online, delivering all of the music content you need, from the world’s best record labels and music publishers, together in one place. The trial is available to SLWA members until 31 March. Have a look, have a read, have a listen, have a play and let us know what you think by filling out the short survey.
Pieces on the AMEB Violin Manual List are now listed on our website with direct links to our catalogue. Save some time as we have taken all the difficult catalogue searching out and done all the navigating for you. We are gradually adding other instruments to our listings which can be found here. Do let us know if you find any broken links.
Why not use Naxos Music Library to have a listen to Richard Strauss’s powerful opera Elektra ahead of its opening at His Majesty’s Theatre this week? You can hear excerpts from the opera, or you can listen to the voices of many of the cast (Eva Johansson, Orla Boylan, Elizabeth Campbell, Fiona Campbell, Merlyn Quaife and others) singing a variety of other music. You can use Naxos with your free membership to the State Library, and you can listen in the comfort of your home. And you can discover a whole world of music by listening to over 900,000 tracks.
Have a look at a new web page for Choral Music on the SLWA site. Here you will also find a list of choral music including popular, rock, jazz, film, show and television music. It is difficult to isolate these works via a traditional catalogue search, so we’ve done the hard work for you. Also check out some of the internet resources for choirs and choral music in WA and make sure your choir is listed. If you have produced a recording, we’d love to have it in our collection.
Pieces on the AMEB Oboe Manual Lists are now listed on our website with direct links to our catalogue. Save some time and spend it making reeds or practising rather than endlessly clicking. We have done all the navigating for you. If you are the young oboist in the photo, a member of Perth’s All-Youth Orchestra in 1945, we would love to hear from you and put a name to the face. Cor anglai-ists (!) have also been catered for. We are gradually adding other instruments to our listings which can be found here.
