COVID update

In response to the current restrictions in the UK and Ireland we are deferring Session 1 face-to-face practical exams at Public Venues and paper-based Grade 6 to 8 Music Theory exams at Public Venues and Private Visits. Where we can we will still offer practical exams at Private Visits. Our remotely-assessed Performance Grade and ARSM exams and our Grade 1 to 5 online Music Theory exams are unaffected and all dates remain unchanged. To read more, please visit our latest updates page.

Making Music virtual concerts

Join the Making Music team tomorrow at 7pm for their latest concert broadcast on their YouTube channel.

Making Music are celebrating the wonderful breadth and variety of music that their member groups perform by broadcasting it to the world.

Member groups have had to cancel rehearsals and performances due to COVID-19. However, in homes all over the country the leisure-time music scene is still thriving through people keeping in touch online socially or managing to find a way to rehearse and perform digitally.

The fortnightly virtual concerts will feature video and/or audio recordings of groups playing or singing, including an introduction to each group and piece.
