CONTEMPORARY IDIOMS™

Our Contemporary Idioms™ stream exams feature contemporary repertoire including Jazz styles of Blues and Swing, as well as Rock, Pop and World music. The skills portion of the exams include improvisation elements. Students can study and be assessed using the music that relates to their current social experience.

Flex Theory Exams icon

FLEX THEORY EXAMS

Flex Theory Exams can be scheduled at any time of year, whenever the student is ready. Theory 1 - 3 are now available in two parts as partial exams to lessen the workload to be studied at any one time.

Flexible Repertoire icon

FLEXIBLE REPERTIORE

Students can choose from our expanding list of repertoire, or suggest their own for free approval. Customize your experience using music that you are passionate about!

Mini Lessons icon

MINI LESSONS

Mini-Lessons can be purchased in advance when you register for exams, giving the student a 15 minute lesson with the Examiner immediately following the exam. This is a great opportunity to seek advice and tips from one of our professional musician Examiners. Teachers and Parents are welcome to attend!

Viva Voca icon

VIVA VOCE

All exams feature background questions, or Viva Voce. Students are asked to comment on terms, signs and details about the composers of their pieces.

Keyboard Harmony icon

KEYBOARD SKILLS

Keyboard Harmony and Transposition are a featured component of Classical Piano exams starting at Grade 5.

Partial Examinations icon

PARTIAL EXAMINATIONS

Students can split their practical exams into two partials beginning at Grade / Level 7.

Recital Assessments icon

RECITAL ASSESSMENTS

Recital Assessments are a great way to have students achieve a standing and certificate while focusing on playing repertoire in front of an audience, without skills. An Examiner provides a written report and students are encouraged to provide program notes. Several students can be combined together to create a larger audience.
