P Plate Piano

P Plate Piano is an exciting new option for young pianists that comprises a series of three bright, colourful piano books for beginner pianists.

Each book in the series includes almost 20 fun-to-play pieces introducing a range of styles with carefully graded technical challenges. The books also feature stunning artwork, fun activities and informative text written by nationally respected music educator Elissa Milne.

The books are designed to complement the teacher's existing methods for an all-round musical experience and provide perfect preparation for AMEB Preliminary Piano or Piano for Leisure.

An optional non-graded assessment, with written feedback provided by an AMEB examiner, is available when students complete each book.

In Western Australia, you can enrol by using our generic enrolment form and normal enrolling procedures. The fee for each assessment is $50.00

The Schedule and Fees page has more information regarding enrolling for a P Plate Piano assessment.

Once the student has completed the third book assessment, they will be eligible for their 'Licence'.

For more information, visit the P Plate Piano website, which also has an Frequently Asked Questions page.

First Assessment

The first P Plate Piano 'assessment' in Australia was held on April 7, 2010 at the AMEB(WA) centre in Claremont.

Radheya Jegatheva played 'Listen Please', 'Andante' and 'Galway Piper' from Book 3, while his mum and brother listened attentively in the audience.

Radheya was 'assessed' by Mr Barry Palmer, examiner and former Academic Development Officer of the AMEB (WA). Once Radheya had finished playing, Mr Palmer presented him with his P Plate Piano certificate and a special one-off congratulatory certificate to commemorate the occasion of the first P Plate Piano assessment in Australia.

He has now received his licence – well done, Radheya!

More information about the program can be found on the P Plate Piano website.
