Most of my younger students take examinations, not because we are obsessed with them, but for most people, having a goal is a good thing to work towards…
We always consider very carefully what kind of exam, which exam board, and which pieces are best suited for the individual student. This is all part of ensuring that we take a holistic approach to learning and that we always work to the student’s strengths and what will encourage them to progress most.
What I love about London College of Music exams is my students come out of them with the biggest grins on their faces! The atmosphere is very relaxed and the examiners always delightful. LCM offers Early Learning exams at 3 levels for children aged 6 and under as well as 3 levels of piano pregrade 1 examinations and 2 levels of music theatre pregrade 1 so children can build up their confidence and totally normalise performing and talking to someone they don’t know. It really does set them up for life!
Students are entered for practical exams with ABRSM, Trinity and LCM and theory exams with ABRSM and Trinity.
It’s time to be proud of you all again...100% of all examinations across all 3 examination boards in spring 2018 resulted in a Distinction!
