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.

Renee performs The Reef by Walter Carroll

To cheer up dad after a busy shift in A&E at Guernsey Hospital, Renee performs The Reef by Walter Carroll. Well done Renee, we love your performance …we love your wine rack too, mum! This piece appears in our Grade 4 Piano syllabus. Do you have a performance you’d like to share? Email us at [email protected]
