Performance Grade exams

We are now offering Performance Grade exams every month. Please check here for dates and fees. We are extending the introductory 15% discount for these exams so that it applies to all remotely-assessed Performance Grade and ARSM exams in 2021. Just enter code ABPG15MO when you book. Please also read our terms and conditions here.

Performance Grades discount: system error

We currently have an error in our systems relating to discount codes. When you add the code your order summary will show that 15% has been added to the total, not taken away. However, the 15% discount will be applied to your booking and the correct total will appear at the top of the next screen before you pay. We're working to fix this and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Grade 5 Music Theory waiver (not applicable in the UK & Ireland)

We are extending our Grade 5 Music Theory waiver until 23 May 2021. This means that candidates with a Grade 6 to 8 Performance Grade exam submission date up to and including 23 May can take their exam without first passing Grade 5 Music Theory. We are making this exceptional arrangement to allow candidates who have been unable to take an exam in recent months to progress with their learning. From 24 May, the Grade 5 Music Theory requirement will return. For exam dates/exam submission dates after 23 May, all candidates taking a Grade 6 to 8 Performance or Practical Grade must first pass Grade 5 Music Theory.

Bangkok Opera Foundation

Bangkok Opera Foundation (Opera Siam) leads a dynamic educational programme each year, including a number of orchestral, opera and choral music camps, numerous performances, and regular international tours. Founded in 2010 by Somtow Sucharitkul, the Siam Sinfonietta was designed to create world-class classical musicians from the most talented young Thai performers. It has gone on to win many top prizes, and performed at three in festivals in Carnegie Hall. Graduates of the program are acknowledged as some of the finest young musicians in the region. The acceptance of students into the program is on a 100% scholarship basis. They do not charge anything to the students or their parents in order to ensure that all are eligible regardless of financial status. ABRSM has supported this programme since 2018.
