Practical Session 2 Update - Malta

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

Unfortunately government restrictions have not lifted in time for us to open the postponed booking period. Therefore we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for October-December. Our Representative will provide further guidance in due course. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades https://gb.abrsm.org/en/performancegrades/ internationally and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.

The booking period for online Music Theory exams at Grades 1 to 5 is now open. The closing date is Monday 12 October. For information about Grades 6 to 8, see our dates and fees page. To book exams you will need to register and create an account with our new online booking service.

Free resource for schools

Music teachers are increasingly charged with creating ambitious, surprising, unexpected musical collaborations: for beginner and experienced players; using electric and acoustic, Western and non-Western instrumentation; and for a variety of ensembles. It can be difficult to find music that's flexible enough for these increasingly eclectic groups, but ABRSM has a solution for it – wherever you are in the world!

Introducing Group Loops

Group Loops is a free online platform that gives you fun, flexible repertoire, always suiting the needs of your class. Making music together just got a whole lot easier.

How does it work?
  1. Set up your class or music group
  2. Add your students, their instruments and ability
  3. Choose a piece to play
  4. Print out the customised parts for you and your class
  5. Enjoy making music!

 

“I’m interested in finding material that music teachers want to use and that young people want to play. The one-page score from Group Loops enables you to do that. What ABRSM have really nailed with this is the way you can connect traditional materials, techniques and learning with newer, creative approaches to music making.” – Tim Steiner, composer and conductor specialising in devised and collaborative performance
