Practical Session 2 Update - USA

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners And we are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for October-December. Our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades https://gb.abrsm.org/en/performancegrades/ internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

Did you see Beat Goes On on The One Show?

With free downloadable resources and a body percussion workshop EVERY morning, we’re loving Ollie Tunmer's efforts to turn us into the next cast of STOMP.

Ollie is the founder and director of Beat Goes On. He is a former cast member of the hit show STOMP and its sister show, The Lost & Found Orchestra. He is also a qualified secondary school music teacher and combines these experiences to deliver fun, engaging and memorable workshops which draw on participants’ own ideas, as well as developing skills and knowledge. Ollie also promotes the use of music as a means of encouraging well-being, for individuals and teaching communities.
