Music Exams

Why do an exam?
If you are working hard to make progress with your music you need some way of recognising your success and reassurance that you are on the right road. This is exactly what music exams offer.
ABRSM has been giving structure and support and setting standards for over a hundred years. During that time much has been tried, tested and consolidated. We use that wealth of experience for the benefit and guidance of the many hundreds of thousands who regularly take the grades, knowing that they are part of the most respected and valued system of music exams in the world.

Who are the examiners?
ABRSM’s team of over 600 examiners consists of respected musicians from every branch of the profession. It includes orchestral players, soloists, chamber music players, heads of school music departments and professors from the Royal Schools of Music, many of whose names are well-known in the musical world.
