考生報考ARSM時,沒有樂理資格要求。考生只要滿足(上述)任一報考條件,則無需提供樂理資格證書。

考試要求

ABRSM中心會提供一臺合適鋼琴,可能為立式或三角鋼琴。考試前不安排熱身練習,考官會理解考生對考試用琴可能不習慣。我們鼓勵考生在正式演奏前花幾鐘時間試琴。

可以,考生可以帶一名音栓助手;無需事先批準。考官不能協助調整音栓配置。音栓助手可同時擔任翻譜員。

可以,考生可以適當地使用F調和C調牧童笛,或它們的任意組合。考試曲目單所有作品均針對中音牧童笛,除非另有說明。

可以,考生可以適當地使用E♭調和B♭調薩克管,或它們的任意組合。考試曲目單所有作品均針對E♭調中音薩克管,除非另有說明。

可以,考生可以適當地使用次中音長號、低音長號、中音長號,或它們的任意組合。考試曲目單所有作品均針對次中音長號,除非另有說明。

打擊樂的考試曲目單分為四類——有調打擊樂器、定音鼓、小軍鼓和組合打擊樂器。考生表演的曲目必須包括這四類樂器的其中三類,每類至少一首作品。

聲樂考試曲目單按照標準聲樂分類,但考生可以演唱任何聲樂種類曲目單中的合適曲目。

除歌劇、喜歌劇、神劇、清唱劇和聖樂曲目必須依照譜面調性演唱之外(巴洛克時期作品可用原曲音高,如適用),所有曲目都可以用任何調性演唱。

There is no specific requirement to perform from memory. However, candidates are encouraged to do so if they consider it will enhance their performance.

We advise singers to perform their programme from memory, with the exception of oratorio/sacred items and complex contemporary scores.

Please note that:

  • No additional marks are directly awarded for performing from memory.
  • A copy of the music should be available for the examiner to refer to (before or after the performance of the programme) if necessary. This may be the accompanist’s copy.

To hear what our Chief Examiner has to say about performing from memory in your ARSM exam, watch this video.

Performances should be accompanied where appropriate and candidates should provide their own piano accompanist. The candidate’s teacher may act as accompanist. Pre-recorded accompaniments are not allowed and the examiner cannot act as the accompanist.

Candidates and accompanists may bring a page-turner to assist with awkward page-turns; prior permission is not needed. Examiners are not able to help with page-turning.

 

Examiners may ask to look at the music before or after the performance of the whole programme. A separate copy of the music is not needed – examiners can use the candidate’s or accompanist’s copy.

Candidates who are performing from memory must also bring copies of their music.

Performing from unauthorized photocopies (or other kinds of copies) of copyright editions is not allowed. ABRSM may withhold the exam result where we have evidence of an illegal copy being used.

In the UK, copies may be used in certain limited circumstances – for full details, see the MPA’s Code of Fair Practice at www.mpaonline.org.uk. In all other cases, application should be made to the copyright holder before any copy is made, and evidence of permission received should be brought to the exam.

Our exams are normally conducted in English.

As there are no tests in ARSM which require a candidate to respond to questions from the examiner, an interpreter is unlikely to be needed. However, a candidate who is not comfortable using English may be allowed to bring an independent person into the exam room as interpreter. Please refer to our exam regulations for more information.

其他信息

This ARSM syllabus is valid from January 2017 until further notice.

We will post any minor updates at www.abrsm.org/syllabuscorrections. Advance notice of a revised syllabus containing significant changes will be provided on our main ARSM page.

Every candidate will get a mark form with feedback and marks. Successful candidates receive a certificate and can add letters (ARSM) after their name.

Exam music should be available from music retailers worldwide as well as online.

ARSM repertoire lists are the same as the existing lists for the DipABRSM (Music Performance) diploma. We have made every effort to ensure that the publications listed remain available for the duration of both syllabuses.

We advise candidates to buy their music well in advance of the exam in case of any delays with items temporarily out of print or not kept in stock by retailers.

Apart from queries relating to exams, all enquiries about the music (e.g. editorial, availability) should be addressed to the relevant publisher. Contact details are listed at www.abrsm.org/publishers.

The prerequisite for entry to DipABRSM is an ABRSM Grade 8 (which includes having passed Grade 5 Music Theory). ARSM will be accepted as a substitute to this prerequisite as long as you can show that you have also passed ABRSM Grade 5 Theory. Some alternative qualifications and experience will also be accepted.

To find out how ARSM helps to prepare you for DipABRSM, watch this video.

No, ARSM and DipABRSM (Music Performance) are separate diplomas. Anyone who wishes to obtain a DipABRSM needs to take the exam in full.

 

The DipABRSM and LRSM diplomas in Music Performance are more wide-ranging qualifications than ARSM as skills and knowledge beyond the performance itself are assessed. You need to demonstrate that you already have a strong foundation in all these areas before you can enter for LRSM. As such, you can only take LRSM (Music Performance) if you have passed DipABRSM (Music Performance). Some alternative qualifications and experience will also be accepted.

(*Advanced Certificate is no longer valid, this exam was withdrawn in 2001.)

Yes, these two exams do differ. The Advanced Certificate assessed a 30-40 minute performance, as well as Quick Study, Viva and Musicianship Tests. ARSM is a performance-only diploma, where candidates present a 30-minute programme.

ABRSM graded music examinations and diplomas are regulated in England by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) and the corresponding regulatory authorities in Wales (Qualifications Wales) and Northern Ireland (the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment - CCEA). They are part of the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) in England.

The ARSM has been placed at Level 4 in the RQF, and appears in the register that can be viewed at register.ofqual.gov.uk as the ABRSM Level 4 Diploma in Music Performance (ARSM).

As part of its regulatory processes, ABRSM has assigned Guided Learning Hours (GLH) and Total Qualification Time (TQT) to the ARSM. These are figures designed to give an idea of the volume of work, expressed in number of hours, which could reasonably be required in order for a candidate to achieve the qualification.

Guided Learning Hours express the number of hours of direct supervision, e.g. lessons with a tutor, that a candidate is likely to need in preparation for a qualification. The Total Qualification Time encompasses Guided Learning Hours plus an estimate of the total number of hours of other preparation, e.g. personal practice, likely to be required.

For the ARSM, the figures are as follows:

Guided Learning Hours (GLH)

Total Qualification Time (TQT)

54

900

For further information on ABRSM’s accreditation and regulation, see www.abrsm.org/regulation.

The exams will not be recorded routinely but will be subject to the full range of quality assurance processes we always apply. These include moderating examiners regularly, analysis of mark form comments and results, recording of marks for statistical checks, an appeals process, ongoing annual CPD and occasional recordings for specific purposes.

DipABRSM is a more wide-ranging qualification than ARSM, requiring the demonstration of skills and knowledge beyond the performance itself. The two diplomas will both be accredited exams placed at Level 4 in the Regulated Qualification Framework with Ofqual. Level 4 covers a broad range of regulated qualifications across many different disciplines, including Music diplomas, and within this range of qualifications different degrees of content, depth and breadth are required. ARSM will sit lower in Level 4 than DipABRSM due to its focus on performance alone.
