Ratings and Reviews
A bit disappointed
I’m a bit disappointed with this as I was expecting to be able to get any song that is on the syllabus. Unfortunately, for Grade 3, this doesn’t list all the songs that my daughter is covering for her exam! A shame as the other 2 songs are great for practice.

Thank you for your comment, we are glad you find this app useful for practising.
As stated in the store description, It is currently possible to purchase all accompaniments from the ABRSM Songbook Plus series. These accompaniments match the exam requirements as described in the ABRSM Songbook Plus books. Where appropriate, cuts or edits have been made to the pieces to achieve this.
You have to pay for every song and my iPad doesn’t do in app purchases.
It is so unfair that the app is free but then everything else you have to pay for. If I could I would give it no stars.
Also I have my exam coming up and I need to practice with music but I can’t. You should defiantly try and make this better or at least make the music less money. I mean, £10! I know that doesn’t sound like too much but you do 3 songs and there is 8 exams. If you paid for all of that it would be £240! This app is rubbish and I will be deleting it!😡

Thank you for your comment. Within the app, it is possible to purchase the piano accompaniment track for individual pieces for £1.99 each or you can purchase an entire grade (a bundle of 12-14 pieces) for £8.99 per grade. The app caters for grades 1-5. So, if you were to purchase 3 individual pieces at each grade this would come to a total of 3x1.99x5 = £29.85; or if you decided to purchase all available material for all grades this would come to a total of 5x8.99 = £44.95.
If you are having trouble making in-app purchases, please contact email@example.com so we can assist you.
More music needed!
Great idea but doesn’t give whole song backings, only the ‘exam requirement’. Please produce backings that match what is printed in the book!
