These examinations assess performance and technical skills from beginner to accomplished performer.

A wide range of repertoire

Our extensive syllabuses are developed through consultation with teachers worldwide.

Supporting a range of learning and teaching styles

Our alternative and flexible approach to Technical Work and Supporting Tests allows students to perform to their strengths.

Putting performance at the heart of the exam

We offer a markscheme that awards a higher proportion of the marks to the performance of the pieces, and with Technical Work focused on developing performance skills.
