箏考級曲目1-6級書 / Guzheng Exam Level 1-6 book

今日我想簡單介紹一下這一本書:箏考級曲目1-6級 (中央音乐学院海内外考級曲目:海外版)。如果是在中國大陸以外的地方考級,據我所知很多學生都需要使用這本書的,包括每年在香港、加拿大、美國考級的朋友。我去年在加拿大卑詩省考級的時候都需要這本書。出席考級是需要帶備正版書籍,影印或盜版的一律不接受。這本書通常可以過考級機構購買,如香港考試評核局、加拿大庇詩中樂團等,記憶中大約$30 加元 (不到$200港元)。如有需要,香港考試評核局也可以把書空郵到外地方便購買。書本是全繁體中文的。

這本書的目的,我想最主要是幫學生考級。裡面每一級都包括數個練習和歌曲。例如第一級有按音練習、關山月、小鳥朝鳳等,第二級有G調的繡金匾,第三級有漢宮秋月,第四級有紡織忙、瀏陽河,第五級有瑤族舞曲、洞庭新歌……要知道的是,書本排版印刷時頗多錯漏,所以有多地方有錯誤。大家可以參考其他箏友彈奏,或是詢問老師,更正錯誤的地方。每一級的最尾都會講解該級歌曲的來源和背景,還有簡單的樂理練習。

我是最要用這本書學古箏的,穩穩陣陣。網上也有不少箏友錄了歌曲彈奏的法。其中一些歌曲,宋心馨老師的365天線上古箏課程都有講解,以參考一下,有助理解。課本包括的指法也很多,基本的不說,進階的如掃搖、三連音、琶音、雙八度大撮等都有。自學古箏的朋友不妨買一本試下吧!

Today I’d like to briefly introduce this book: GuZheng Exam Level 1-6 (Central Conservatory of Music: overseas edition). If you live outside mainland China, as far as I know, most students need to use this book. For example, students in Hong Kong, Canada and the U.S. are required to use this book to take the annual Guzheng exam. If you want to take a Guzheng exam, you need to bring an authentic copy of the book; photocopy or pirated version is not accepted. This book usually can be purchased through the local examination authority, such as the Hong Kong Examinations Assessment Authority, B.C. Chinese Music Association… etc. I think it cost me about $30cdn (approx. of no more than $200hkd). The book is printed in traditional Chinese. The Hong Kong Examinations Assessment Authority can also mail it to places outside Hong Kong, so this gives some flexibility if you can’t purchase from a local examination authority.

The purpose of this book, I think, is mainly to help students pass the exam. Each level inside includes several exercises and songs. One thing you need to be aware of is that there are quite a number of printing errors in the book. You can watch videos of how others play, or ask your Guzheng teacher, in order to correct all the printing errors. At the end of each level, the book talks about the background of that level’s songs, as well as includes some basic music theory exercises.

I have been using this book for quite a book. If you search online, you can probably find videos of other Guzheng players playing some of the songs in this book. Ms. Cenxin Song, a famous Chinese Guzheng teacher, teaches an online course called “365 Online Guzheng”. Some of her lessons explain how to play some of the songs in this book. You may wish to check her lessons out to help you understand.

This book has covered a variety of basic and intermediate techniques, such as double octaves and arpeggios. If you are self learning Guzheng, maybe give this book a try!
