We have a strong history of excellent examination results with AMEB, Rockschool and ANZCA, and we offer the support & training students need to fulfill exam requirements. Exam certificates can be very useful in school, university and scholarship applications, as well as on resumes, and they are a great way to demonstrate what all your hard work has achieved! Even more beneficial than an exam certificate is the process of learning exam material - pieces, technical work, aural skills, sight reading skills, improvisation, and general knowledge. We consistently see that students who prepare for grades make excellent gains in their musical development.
Our StageReady classes prepare students for an AMEB Musical Theatre exam at the end of the year and our ArtistReady classes prepare students for a Rockschool Vocals examination. Sitting for the actual exam is an optional extra - many students have enjoyed this final step in officially completing a grade but some students prefer just to move to the next grade without this step. However, even for students who do not wish to sit for the examination, the preparation is excellent training that really benefits students. By preparing students in class time, the amount of practice required is reduced and students learn material more easily as they're learning alongside others. In short, you'll be having so much fun you won't even realise you're learning!
We also offer preparation for AMEB Pianoforte (ie "classical piano"), AMEB Piano For Leisure, Rockschool Piano, Rockschool Guitar and AMEB/Rockschool Theory.
