Practical Session 3 update
We are working hard on solutions to ensure learners can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity. However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 3 Practical exams scheduled for October - December. Our Representatives 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 internationally starting before the end of 2020 and will share exam dates and booking periods soon.
Music Theory Exam update – session C
We are pleased to confirm that we will be offering our Music Theory exams as usual this November. These exams will all be paper-based and available for Grades 1 to 8, using the existing ‘from 2018’ Music Theory syllabus.
In Grades 1–3, this syllabus may be offered on a mini-horn in Bb or F.
The accompanied pieces are published in F editions unless otherwise indicated. For those pieces not published in F, candidates may use manuscript transpositions of their parts if necessary.
Some List C pieces are published with transposition suggestions but in the exam they should be played in the written keys only.
Download recordings of pieces from our Grade 1 syllabus.
An anthology providing a selection of well-crafted arrangements.
Graded repertoire to support the lower brass instruments.
Practice material for students preparing for Horn exams.
New editions offering support to teachers preparing students for Practical exams.
