Music is our passion
At ABRSM it’s our mission to inspire musical achievement. From world-class exams, award-winning books and innovative learning apps, to scholarships, donations and creative partnerships – we do everything we can to support participation, progression and success in music.
We offer assessments for musicians of all ages and abilities. Our exams are designed to motivate musical progression, provide goals and reward achievement. They encourage the development of core musical skills, which you can use for the rest of your life, whatever you want to do with your music.
People all over the world trust and value our assessments – over 600,000 are taken in more than 90 countries every year.
We invest £7million in music education each year. From community ensembles and local choirs, to youth orchestras and scholarships, our funding and sponsorship supports musical participation and progression around the world.
Founded in 1889, we are proud of our heritage while always looking to the future. Building on our experience and expertise we are bringing fresh thinking to music teaching and learning: reviewing and refreshing our existing exams and assessments, creating new resources and developing innovative ways to involve more people in music.
