Performance Grades: Booking for June Performance Grades is open now until 13 May.

Performance Grade exams

We are pleased to confirm that we will be offering Performance Grade exams every month for the remainder of 2021. Please check our Dates and Fees page for details.

Grade 5 Music Theory waiver (not applicable in the UK & Ireland)

We are extending our Grade 5 Music Theory waiver until 23 May 2021. This means that candidates with a Grade 6 to 8 Performance Grade exam submission date up to and including 23 May can take their exam without first passing Grade 5 Music Theory. We are making this exceptional arrangement to allow candidates who have been unable to take an exam in recent months to progress with their learning. From 24 May, the Grade 5 Music Theory requirement will return. For exam dates/exam submission dates after 23 May, all candidates taking a Grade 6 to 8 Performance or Practical Grade must first pass Grade 5 Music Theory.

LPO Moments

Take a Moment to sit back with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and lose yourself in the wonder of orchestral music. From the finale of Beethoven's joyous Seventh Symphony and the sunshine of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, to the elemental and powerful opening of Elena Kats-Chernin's Piano Concerto No. 3, LPO Moments are a bite-sized way to enjoy some of the greatest pieces of classical music. Released weekly on YouTube, enjoy these free-to-watch highlights of our autumn 2020 online concert season, In the Stream of Life, and let the LPO bring a Moment of musical joy into your week.
