Our Teaching Approach
The process of learning music contains elements of listening, performing, memory, rhythm, notation, theory, composition, improvisation, character, and expression. Our music lessons include these elements in the learning process in the form of appropriate, continuously achievable musical activities. The goal of this process is to produce positive and empowered learners. This approach was developed by Paul Harris and is the basis for ABRSM and MTB exams.
ISM provides exam preparation and recording options for students to take the following optional online exams:
ABRSM (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) is an international organisation that offers standardised classical exams for many instruments and all levels of musical ability in over 90 countries. ABRSM performance exams focus on a classical recital program that is recorded and sent for assessment.
The Music Teachers' Board (MTB) exams are online exams for classical music students provided in over 50 countries. MTB practical exams comprise of a Recital section, Technical section and in most cases a Musicianship section. In addition to performance skills, MTB Practical Grades assess a broad array of technical and musical skills such as scales and sight reading.
Whether you are taking your first steps on your instrument, moving into further/higher education, or perfecting your advanced instrument technique; a RSL Rockschool Exams will not only improve your playing ability, but expand your technical proficiency and give you a solid grasp of music theory – all whilst learning some of the most iconic tracks from the world of popular music.
We offer individual and group music lessons at schools in Helsinki, Espoo and Oulu, as well as our studio at Hietalahdenkatu 8 & 10 in Helsinki.
