Performance Grade exams

We are pleased to confirm that we will be offering Performance Grade exams every month for the remainder of 2021. Please check our Dates and Fees page for details.

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.

Classical 100: Teach Primary Resource Award nomination, and our brand new video

2 years ago
Classical 100 nominated for a Teach Primary Resource Award 
We're delighted to learn that Classical 100 has been shortlisted as one of the finalists in this year's Teach Primary Resource Awards.
Run by Teach Primary magazine, the awards look at all kinds of learning resources, this year whittling down over 450 products to just five in each of their 12 categories (we're under 'Music').
The next stage will see the finalists assessed by a panel of primary experts, with their verdicts announced in the magazine's October issue.
Introducing our brand new Classical 100 video
An award nomination isn't the only good news coming from Classical 100 this week. We've also created a short animated video to help bring it all to life. Watch it now.
