Piano Accompaniment Recordings for the ABRSM Practical Brass Examinations. I am looking towards doing some ABRSM practical brass playing examinations and was wondering whether anyone knew of piano accompaniment recordings that I might use to help with practice at home and maybe in my lessons too. I have a great practical brass teacher, but unfortunately he is not also a pianist – very occasionally his wife plays accompaniments but a better solution is needed. Does anybody else have experience with this practice and lesson issue or feel able to offer some suggestions? Does anybody have experience of hiring in a pianist just for the exam?
