If Grade 8 proved less of a challenge than you were hoping for, the Associated Board offers a range of assessments in Music Performance and Music Direction. For each, there are three levels of award:

Diploma of The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music;
Piano Diplomas
Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music; and
Fellowship of the Royal Schools of Music.

Whether you are studying for a career in music, are already a professional musician or simply looking for a new challenge, you will gain skills, knowledge and recognition and are sure to find the experience stimulating, challenging and worthwhile.

A brief overview of the Board’s requirements can be downloaded here. If you are considering working towards a Diploma, please contact me for an informal discussion about reading and repertoire lists and the criteria against which you will be assessed.
