Jazz Performance Assessment is an opportunity for musicians of any age or level to have their prepared work assessed by a musician with broad jazz experience, without the pressure normally associated with public performance or exams.

How it works

A free choice of repertoire – lasting no more than 15 minutes and broadly corresponding to the tunes included in ABRSM’s Jazz syllabus – should be offered, and performers will need to provide their own accompaniment where appropriate. Constructive comments on the performance are written by the examiner on the certificate that each candidate receives at the end of the assessment.
