ABRSM Update

*NEW* ABRSM Remotely-assessed, Performance-focused exams 

After the summer break, we will be launching our new remotely-assessed, performance-focused exams.  These exams are a new permanent addition to the ABRSM exam portfolio and will be available from Grade 1-8, as well as for ARSM.   More information can be found on the ABRSM Website where we will be answering frequently asked questions about these exams: New ABRSM Remotely-assessed, Performance-focused exams. 


ABRSM Exams – Public Venues 

We will not be able to offer exams at public venues during Session 2 (Summer 2020).  We hope to begin offering our existing exams again, as soon as circumstances allow us to do this safely and in line with government guidance.  As lockdown measures continue to be gradually eased, we expect to open the Session 3 booking for all our exams in September 2020.  For updates on public venue based exams please refer to the ABRSM website.


ABRSM Exams - Private Visits

Visit Organisers are now able to book graded music exam Private Visits with exams taking place from early July 2020.   Visit Organisers will be asked to follow new terms and conditions to ensure the safety of everyone involved.  More information on Private Visits can be found here. 


An update on Music Theory will be coming soon! 


Syllabus Launches 

We have launched our Singing for Musical Theatre song lists for Grades 4&5 (available to download here). Our new Piano syllabus will also be launching on the 9th July.


Play On and #LearningMusic

Our Play On initiative continues to inspire teachers, parents and pupils online with new resources and ideas being added weekly.  We also have a new http://www.learningmusicdoes.com/ website which it would be great if you could encourage staff and pupils to engage with to light up the world!
