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.

Pricing for music lessons

Lesson fees per semester include weekly lessons and an end of the year concert (with the last lesson being the concert). A maximum of two lessons can be substituted for workshops and the end of year concert. Prices were established at the ISM Finland Kannatusyhdistys RY Board meeting on 5.2022.

Individual lessons

It is possible for students to have one trial lesson on the instrument of their choice with no obligation to continue lessons. The trial lesson must be paid for in full prior to the arranged lesson time. You can purchase trial lessons from our online shop.
