Globally renowned exams and assessments

In partnership with the Royal Schools of Music, we support music-making and learning across the globe. We offer pathways and resources for learners and teachers that help build musical skills and encourage progress.

Our core activity is providing graded music exams, assessments and diplomas. An ABRSM grade has a worldwide currency and our exams are designed to motivate learners at all levels and ages, providing realistic goals and tangible rewards for their achievements.

And much more

We support teachers and learners with a range of award-winning digital resources and publications, as well as host events and offer professional qualifications.

As a charity, we invest more than £6 million in music education every year, all across the globe. We also work with organisations around the world, providing donations, scholarships and sponsorship.

Our partnership work is never one-off – we build long-lasting relationships and support ongoing projects. We advocate for music, playing our part to ensure the future of music education and its place in society. Working towards this goal for over a century means that we’re a trusted voice at a boardroom table as well as on a concert stage.

Led by our executive board and governing body, our staff members, examiners and volunteers work with passion and dedication to make learning music what it should always be: a joyous and life-enriching experience.
