Boosey & Hawkes launches new digital delivery platform for ABRSM
Digital audio from ABRSM exam syllabuses, including the new Piano 2023 & 2024 syllabus, is now available via newly launched Boosey & Hawkes e-commerce and digital delivery services.
Boosey & Hawkes is pleased to announce the signing of an expanded agreement with The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) covering the downloading of audio files related to selected ABRSM exam music syllabuses. The e-commerce services include an exclusive portal handling the redemption and supply of audio files, provided in tandem with ABRSM printed publications. Audio assets on the portal include recordings for the new Piano Syllabus 2023 & 2024, which was launched on 9 June and comes into effect on 1 January 2023.
A range of over 2500 audio files is now available for the first time directly from the ABRSM Shop which Boosey & Hawkes has operated successfully for the past 12 years. The audio recordings, both performances and accompaniments, are downloadable directly to the customer’s device, where they can be stored and played. The ABRSM Shop also includes new sheet music downloads of pieces from the recently launched Piano Syllabus 2023 & 2024.
With the addition of audio downloads, alongside printed publications and sheet downloads, all three formats can now be assembled in a single basket at the ABRSM Shop.
