Our teachers can prepare students of all ages for public music exams on their chosen instrument.
Our exams are conducted through either AMEB -Australian Music Examinations Board or AGME -Australian Guild of Music Exams.
Both are highly regarded institutions providing an extensive range of syllabuses designed to suit any student from contemporary, rock & jazz to classical.
Students can chose to sit traditional exams; video or live performance exams; or the vibrant Rockschool exams! Both exam bodies provide-
- Friendly Examiners
- Computerised reports giving a real measure of achievement
- A widely recognised qualification from beginner level to tertiary standard
- Certificates & awards
Exams are held twice yearly. Depending on enrolment numbers, exams are held either locally or at Sydney Conservatorium of Music or at AMEB Clarence St studios, Sydney.
First session exam period is May/June with enrolment and entry fees submitted by February. Second session exam period is Oct/Dec with enrolment & fees submitted by August.
Your teacher will advise a suitable exam level/grade, which type of exam would suit you best, exam method books required and time frame to prepare to get the best results.
Shop staff has full list of exam entry fees and closing dates. We will invoice and process online enrolment upon payment.
