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.

Enjoy Singing for Musical Theatre songs by Brit School talents

We are delighted to share a couple of song videos performed by young talents from the Brit School.

Pure Imagination

Pure Imagination is a popular song that’s been covered and interpreted by many artists over the years. This beautiful piece is featured in our Singing for Musical Theatre Songbook and on the Grade 4 syllabus. Enjoy this version performed by Freddie. We hope it will inspire your imagination and take you into a world of wonder!


One Perfect Moment

Featured on our Grade 7 syllabus this lovely song is from the musical Bring It On. It’s about a teenage cheerleader, Campbell, chasing her dreams and reflecting on difficulties to come. Listen to Eithne, and see how she tells the story and conveys Campbell’s feelings through song.

Many thanks to Freddie, Eithne and James Moriarty, piano accompanist and teacher at The BRIT School, Croydon.
