ABRSM Graded music exams
Focusing on all-round musicianship
ABRSM believe in the importance of all-round musicianship and this forms the basis of their exams. To become an all-round musician students need a range of interlocking skills – in performance, technique, notation, and listening and musical perception – as well as knowledge, understanding and creativity. These are the things they assess in their exams.
ABRSM exams are music exams rather than instrumental or singing exams. Examiners are assessing the quality of the music-making, not how it is achieved. For this reason they do not restrict examiners to assessing only their own instrument but require them to examine all instruments.
They have designed their graded music exams to motivate instrumental and singing students of all ages and a wide range of abilities. They are available at eight levels – Grades 1 to 8 – and provide:
-progressive goals to aim for;
-recognition for achievement;
-carefully structured syllabus requirements;
-one-to-one assessment by an expert professional;
-an objective guide to a candidate’s skills and progress.
There are no age restrictions and students can start with any grade or skip grades if they want to.
What is included in the exam?
To succeed in their exams candidates need a combination of skills and understanding. Broadly, They assess:
-performance skills through pieces or songs;
-technical skills through scales and arpeggios;
-notation skills through a sight-reading test;
-and listening skills and musical perception through aural tests.
