Latest exam updates

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.

We are pleased to confirm that we will be offering Performance Grade exams every month for the remainder of 2021. 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.

Jazz Lockdown Recording Project

Walsall Music Education Hub & Service is proud to present 'Heatwave'! The piece is an original composition from one of its teachers, Nick Dewhurst, and has been arranged for their very own 'Walsall Lockdown Bigband'! The track features students from their own bands, New

Generation Jazz as well as Jazz at 6, but also includes members from school jazz bands across Walsall including QM Jazz Big Band and Shire Oak Jazz. We were also delighted to welcome the one and only Walsall Jazz Orchestra to our project too, and several of their members have joined.
