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.

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.

Making Music virtual concerts

Join the Making Music team tomorrow at 7pm for their latest concert broadcast on their YouTube channel.

Making Music are celebrating the wonderful breadth and variety of music that their member groups perform by broadcasting it to the world.

Member groups have had to cancel rehearsals and performances due to COVID-19. However, in homes all over the country the leisure-time music scene is still thriving through people keeping in touch online socially or managing to find a way to rehearse and perform digitally.

The fortnightly virtual concerts will feature video and/or audio recordings of groups playing or singing, including an introduction to each group and piece.
