Trinity’s graded Music exams offer the choice and flexibility to allow candidates to play to their strengths, enabling them to gain recognition for their own unique skills as performers.

The music you want to play

Learners progress in their own musical style by choosing from lists of pieces or songs carefully selected by experts.

The performer you want to be

Our performance-grounded technical work and supporting tests are specifically designed to develop learners’ skills through the music they play.

The recognition you deserve

Candidates are assessed through an externally regulated and internationally recognised exam system, with a 140-year heritage that you can trust. They can gain UCAS points for Grades 6-8.

Certificate exams consist of a mini-recital of pieces, including the option to present own choice repertoire. There is no technical work and no supporting tests.

  • Keyboard (Electronic Keyboard, Digital Keyboard, Organ and Electronic Organ)
