AMEB to deliver Rockschool exams in Australia

rock school ameb

The Directors of AMEB Ltd are pleased to announce a new partnership to deliver Rockschool exams and syllabuses in Australia through AMEB. 

 

Rockschool is a vibrant, contemporary music program of exams and qualifications for guitar, bass, drums, vocals, piano, band-based keyboards and bands. Based in the UK, Rockschool specialises in music of the most popular genres in a range of rock, pop, metal and funk styles. Its qualifications are globally recognised with tens of thousands of exams conducted in the UK and 33 countries around the world.

 

 

The program offers comprehensive syllabuses and a range of exam support materials including grade books, companion guides, technical handbooks and backing recordings. These are regularly updated by musicians across the academic, music industry and live performance sectors to ensure the music remains current and authentic.

 

 

Adding the Rockschool syllabuses to the AMEBs suite of syllabuses provides an opportunity to strengthen the AMEB’s presence in the contemporary music sector with provision of challenging and rewarding exams that develop technique, musicianship and performance ability in musicians of all ages and backgrounds.

 

 

Chair of the Federal Board, Mike Tyler, has welcomed the addition of Rockschool to the AMEB’s offerings. “We’re excited to be working with the globally successful Rockschool to deliver the most up-to-date contemporary music syllabuses and exams to the popular music sector in Australia. We take pride in being able to support music teachers in this sector in inspiring their students to develop technique and musicianship to the highest standards.”

 

 

The Federal Office will manage the Rockschool syllabuses and support materials, and train a national pool of examiners. Exams will be scheduled and administered by the AMEB State Offices. The first exams will be held across the country during October and November 2015.
