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.

Do you want to break free?!

Join our friends at Music in Offices for their Virtual Big Sing in support of The Lord Mayor’s Appeal!

They’re looking for as many singers as possible to belt out the Queen classic I Want to Break Free with them and they’ll be combining all the recordings for a brilliant final virtual performance.

Here’s how it works:

  • Download the score from their website and learn your part.
  • Record your part (they’ll provide support here if needed).
  • Upload your part by Friday 19 June.
  • Join the online Viewing Party of the final performance on Thursday 25 June at 7pm.
  • Everyone welcome. Don't worry about not sounding good enough on your own – remember your voice will be blended with many others. Your best is definitely good enough. Freddie Mercury-style high heels, wig and hoover optional!

For further information on how to take part, please visit the Music in Offices website https://musicinoffices.com/i-want-to-break-free-virtual-choir/.

It's completely free to take part but if you'd like to make a donation to support The Lord Mayor’s Appeal please click here or donate £5 by texting TLMA4321 to 70970. *

With @Culture Mile #virtualchoir #musicinisolation
