Designed for musicians and music teachers seeking professional qualification.
Programme & Certification
In collaboration with ABRSM, we provide training and support to musicians and music teachers seeking professional qualification for career advancement. ARSM (Associate of the Royal Schools of Music) is a performance-only letter diploma from ABRSM. It is open to all those who have qualified Grade 8 from ABRSM or Trinity or Rockschool. Candidates perform a 30-minute programme where they are assessed on their musical communication skills, interpretation and technical delivery. There are no written or spoken elements and no scales, sight-reading or aural tests, making it a very accessible exam.
