Q: What is a grade?

A: Grade means level of difficulty. Attributing a particular level of difficulty to an orchestral piece is awkward: A piece may be easy for the woodwinds but difficult for the brass; it may feature a tricky solo, but the other parts may be relatively straight forward. Several our arrangements are designed to simplify works to some extent, but composers of many original works featured did not consider difficulty when writing them.

Be careful: Our gradings should be taken only as a rough guide.

1 = very easy
2 = easy
3 = medium easy
4 = medium
5 = medium advanced
6 = advanced
7 = very advanced
8 = up to professional
