Online Piano Exams
In response to the cancellation of several exams due to COVID-19 (ABRSM, Piano Guild and others), we have launched an online exam for piano. Students are encouraged to perform selected repertoire for other exams while also choosing one selection from our curated lists. In keeping with our mission these lists aim to provide a diverse and global perspective on piano music for students.
If you are unfamiliar with ABRSM and its practical exams, visit their website and view this first-ever Global High Scorers concert: https://youtu.be/mUdAO-YbQBA (Presumably taken from last year's round of participants.)
The registration form is available here. Once you have registered you will receive an invoice for the exam fee for your level, which can be paid online. (Fees range from $50 to $90.)
Students will receive a certificate in recognition of their participation along with graded feedback from the examiner. Students can also opt to perform their own composition for a separate certificate.
The exam will be in the form of video submissions along with a live interview/audition with an examiner. We plan to partner with adjudicators around the globe to curate our suggested repertoire lists and to assess students.
***Your privacy is important to us! One person will be handling registration form data. Your videos will not be shared publicly, only with one examiner.***
We have new links to register for our online classes!
