Established in 1889 in the United Kingdom, ABRSM (the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) is the most popular music exam organization in the world. Over 630,000 students in 93 countries test themselves every year against the Board’s internationally recognized standards. There are currently exam centers in 20 cities throughout the United States.
ABRSM’s mission is to inspire achievement in music. In partnership with the Royal Schools of Music, ABRSM support high-quality music-making and learning around the world. We offer pathways and resources for learners and teachers that help build musical skills, provide goals and encourage progress.
The ABRSM Exam Center in Georgia was established in the fall of 1996, with the first practical exam in December that year. Since then, about 5 thousand students have taken the practical exam and 3 thousand students have taken the theory written exam. Among these students, the practical subjects taken included piano, piano ensemble, harpsichord, organ, harp, singing, violin, viola, cello, clarinet, flute, horn, saxophone and percussion. Currently, the exam centers in Georgia include Cambridge Academy of Music at Johns Creek and at Chamblee, and Fulton Science Academy in Alpharetta.
Assessments begin with an introductory Preparatory Test which is followed by the graded exams. These start with Grade 1 and are numbered progressively in order of difficulty to Grade 8. Beyond Grade 8 are the professional diploma levels, including ARSM, DipABRSM, LRSM and FRSM in three categories—teaching, performing and conducting.
The ABRSM has the authority of the four leading conservatories in the United Kingdom: ♦ Royal Academy of Music
♦ Royal College of Music
♦ Royal Northern College of Music ♦ Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
