These include the age of the current syllabus, its general suitability as reported to us by candidates, teachers and examiners, the currency of publications featured on the manual lists, and whether the pedagogical models on which it was based are now considered outdated. These include: Grade books for Preliminary to Grade 4, which contain a wide variety of examinable repertoire for these first five grades of the Double Bass syllabus. The Certificate of Performance is conceived both as a capstone recital-type experience at the end of Level 2 and as preparation for the challenges of the diploma examinations in Level 3. The repertoire selections for the syllabus and grade books were made to appeal to a broad range of musical tastes. Throughout all levels, great care has been taken to ensure that this syllabus is as appealing and pedagogically valuable as possible.
