WHAT IS it?
We offer the option to take ABRSM exams for all students. ABRSM (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) is an international organisation that offers standardised exams for many instruments and all levels of musical ability in over 90 countries. ISM Finland is one of the few music schools in Finland that follows the internationally recognised ABRSM syllabus.
ABRSM exams are organised once per year (generally at the end of the spring semester) and are meant to encourage and motivate players and singers at all levels by providing clear goals and measuring their progress. Exams are overseen by a panel of teachers and are provided for musicians at various levels, from a Prep Test for beginners to Diplomas for advanced students and professionals. A list of common questions regarding the examination and syllabus can be found here.
Rock School Exams!
We have the opportunity to become the first music school in Finland to provide Pop and Rock music exams through UK-based RSL Awards. These online exams are especially encouraged for guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and pop vocal students.
Ask your teacher for more information!
