Have you been thinking about taking a Music Exam but wondering if the hard work and preparation is worth it? The word exam can make the idea sound daunting and unenjoyable as it reminds us of school and having to prepare for a test. On the contrast, music exams can be a great way to channel your passion for music into attainable goals further developing your passion for music. This Valentine’s season, let’s explore the myriad benefits of these exams and how they can amplify our love for music.
- Structured Progress with RCM, Conservatory Canada, ABRSM, and London College:
These reputable institutions offer a structured path to musical mastery. The Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM), Conservatory Canada, Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM), and London College provide comprehensive syllabi that cater to various musical tastes and skill levels. The dynamic challenges each exam presents turn the learning journey into an exciting adventure.
Another great option for students who enjoy a structured path to musical learning is taking music theory exams. Music theory is beneficial for students on all instruments and a great way to deepen your understanding of music. Find out more about Music Theory in our blog post “Why Learning Music Theory is Important.”
- Embracing the Love of Variety:
Appreciate the diverse range of exams available. Whether it’s the classical rigor of ABRSM, the inclusive approach of Conservatory Canada, or the globally recognized standards of RCM, there’s something for every musical taste. These exams not only broaden your musical horizons but also provide a holistic learning experience.
- Digital Badge Assessments: A Less Threatening Option:
If the traditional exam setting feels a bit intimidating, consider the contemporary option of Digital Badge Assessments. These online evaluations offer a more relaxed environment, allowing musicians to showcase their musical prowess in a setting that aligns with their preferences.
- Boosting Confidence and Performance Skills:
Music exams aren’t just about assessments; they’re about building confidence and honing performance skills. The opportunity to showcase your personality through music turns each exam into a stage for self-expression.
- Setting Achievable Goals:
Enjoy the process of setting and achieving goals. Music exams provide clear milestones, turning the journey of learning an instrument into a series of accomplishments. Working towards goals and achieving success is a great way to enhance your love for music and learning.
