Online Performance Examinations are available for Performance, Teaching, Composition, Musicology and Music Therapy applications. They may also be utilised for CPE presentations where required.
Online performance examinations are particularly suited to any applicants who prefer:
The convenience of undertaking their examination performance online, or who
do not have access to an accredited school or registered teacher, or who
are performers seeking accreditation via the Institute’s School of Music, or whose
teachers are seeking an independent assessment for a candidate.
All applicants are to record a video that includes all the required content. Each performance must be recorded in one take (e.g., one movement or 1 song at a time, etc.), with no editing permitted (candidates should select the best of several takes).
Video Performance Requirements:
Before performing, please give an introduction stating your full name and the works/pieces chosen (including the composer) as you might perform them on a stage by introducing each piece before it is played or sung in addition to your submitted list of works (or program sent via email).
Video presentations are to be sent via YouTube (files need to be converted to MP4 before uploading).
Candidates may also perform an additional piece on a minor instrument adding further weight to the overall performance.
Analytical and interpretative skills are to be evidenced throughout the candidate’s performance; including, if applicable, the candidate’s own composition(s), cadenza(s), arranging and/or re-working of the compositions presented.
No time limits apply to any level of examination. Examiners will select various sections for assessment or listen to the whole presentation at their discretion.
Online candidates are also required to provide proof of identity (passport, ID card etc.) other forms of photo identification via online attachments to the admin email account.
