please after you choose your jazz pieces, please do share with us.
As for me, I will chosse the pieces based on their written list. I guess it is easier for me, as I don't need to get any authority to pre-approve.
Yes. All accepted. I am now having some private lessons to get me up to speed. My tutor says he expects it to take about a year. I don't mind as I have not had any lessons for about 13 years. Part of the idea of taking the diploma was to try to improve my playing. The pieces are valid for five years. I hope I don't take that long to reach the standard.
My understanding is that the approval is for the whole list. If I wanted to change anything I would have to go through the approval process again. If anyone else wanted to use the same pieces, I assume that they would still have to go through the approval process.
