Music Medals

Music Medals are a cost-effective examination for certain instruments for beginner to intermediate standard and are offered by the ABRSM. They are undertaken as part of weekly lessons rather than at an external examination centre.

Video recordings are made and marked by the tutor before being sent to the examination board for moderation. Students are able to make their recording any time from the date of entry and usually once they are fully prepared and have reached the standards required in each of the tests.

The music for the medals is drawn from the range of tutor books we use with our pupils thus avoiding additional expense just to pass the examination. Successful candidates are awarded a certificate and coloured pin badge.

Music Medals are available for the following instruments:

Guitar

Viola

Double Bass

Clarinet

Trombone

Oboe

Trumpet

Tenor Horn

Euphonium

Tuba

Violin

Cello

Flute

Saxophone

Recorder

Bassoon

Cornet

Baritone Horn

French Horn

Keyboard


Timing of an entry is usually agreed upon in conjunction with your child's instrumental teacher with payment being made before recording your entry. They will provide you with an application form which will include the most up-to-date costs associated with these awards and the video permissions we require to submit their entry.
