However, on the basis of official and local advice we will be cancelling Session 2 Practical exams scheduled for November-December. We are very sorry for the impact on teachers and candidates and we will continue to monitor the situation. Thank you for your loyalty and support while these restrictions remain in place.

We will be gradually rolling out remotely-assessed Performance Grades and will share exam dates and booking periods soon

ABRSM unites nations for Make Music Day 2020

More than 700 musicians, from infant school pupils to retirees, have united virtually from around the world for an online performance of the Disney song, ‘How Far I’ll Go’, to mark international Make Music Day 2020 on Sunday 21 June.

ABRSM chief executive Michael Elliott said: “We were only expecting a hundred or so people to send in recordings but we’ve been bowled over by the sheer number of submissions, their quality and the range of nations that they represent.

“The variety of ages, from four-years-old to over 70, is equally impressive. It just seems that the idea has really caught people’s imagination and provided a timely reminder of the power of music and music learning in bringing communities together.”

Make Music Day is the world’s biggest international celebration of music, taking place in 125 countries on 21 June every year. It is a DIY festival encouraging people to organise live streamed music events for their communities.

Michael Elliott said: “We’ve been supporting teachers, parents and learners with our Play On initiative over the past few months. The virtual ensemble is an extension of the same commitment to keep everyone playing and progressing.”
