Practical Session 2 Update

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be postponing the entry period for Session 2 Practical exams and we will provide an update about the exams scheduled for November – December as soon as we can. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

Be part of a 700-strong community of musicians

Are you looking for a freelance role that supports developing musicians, complements a portfolio career, and lets you travel? If yes, music examining could be just the thing for you.

For the first time, we are looking to recruit and train a team of examiners based in South East Asia. We will be running a training course in Singapore in February 2020.

Hear what it’s like to be a Grade examiner from our Chief Examiner John Holmes:

What we look for
  • Musician with a strong educational background
  • Willingness to travel across South East Asia (our biggest international tours take place in Hong Kong, Malaysia, China and Singapore, often in groups with others)
  • Experience and qualities to cope and react positively in a range of situations
  • Experience of working with children
  • Competent but not necessarily performing pianist 
  • Time commitment of at least three weeks, twice a year
What you'll enjoy
  • Comprehensive training and ongoing professional development if you're successful (unique for a freelance role in music education)
  • Competitive pay, with the potential to work as much as you want
  • Dedicated help desk for any queries or support
  • International SOS support when working overseas for any medical or security issues
