Latest exam updates

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.

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.

What’s it like to be a conductor?

Conductors! Who are they, what do they do and how did they get the job? Michael Seal is talking to distinguished conductors to find out all the answers. Each week, he interviews a conductor, discovers more about their journey to the podium, and finds out how they were supported by teachers and mentors.

At the end of each podcast, Michael will ask every conductor the same set of ten questions, helping us to find out what makes them tick. So, if you’ve ever been curious about the person waving that baton, or you’re a real conducting geek, then this should be a fascinating insight in to what it takes to become a maestro.
