Instrumental/Vocal Teaching diplomas (DipABRSM, LRSM and FRSM)

Our teaching diplomas are designed for candidates who are intending to take up or have already started teaching an instrument or singing.

While the assessment components include educational theory and philosophy, curriculum studies and aspects of educational administration, the focus through these diplomas is the teaching of music as a practical activity.

Through live and written components, you'll be examined in your approaches to teaching, your competence as a performer and your understanding of repertoire.

Please note that a change to the graded Singing syllabus, which requires Grade 6–8 candidates to prepare three songs instead of four, is now also reflected in the DipABRSM and LRSM Teaching Skills Viva Voce demonstration requirements, as follows:

  • Candidates taking DipABRSM Principles of Instrumental/Vocal Teaching (Singing) will be required to prepare three Grade 6 songs, chosen from any three of the five lists
  • Candidates taking LRSM Instrumental/Vocal Teaching (Singing) will be required to prepare three Grade 8 songs, chosen from any three of the five lists

There'll be an overlap period in place for candidates to prepare songs from the 2009–2017 Singing syllabus until 31 December 2018. However, during this period, DipABRSM and LRSM candidates wishing to demonstrate songs from the previous syllabus should only prepare three songs, and are free to choose these from any three of the four old lists.

These changes don't affect FRSM Music Education (Singing), and all other DipABRSM and LRSM Teaching requirements remain unchanged.
