Teaching Music

AMEB offers graded examinations in teaching music including one certificate exam, Certificate Teacher of Music Australia (CTMusA), and two diploma exams, Associate Teacher of Music Australia (ATMusA) and Licentiate Teacher of Music Australia (LTMusA). These exams cover current pedagogy practice and combine practical and written sections to allow teachers to extend their knowledge and professional expertise.

 

Prerequisites

We recommend before entering for the Certificate exam that instrumentalists have reached the age of 18 years, and vocalists have reached the age of 20 years. In addition, we recommend that candidates have achieved a pass in Sixth Grade practical of their instrument and a pass in Fourth Grade Theory, Musicianship or Music Craft. For more information on prerequisites, see the Manual of Syllabuses.

 

Certificate Teacher of Music Australia (CTMusA)

Certificate exams are designed as an introduction to the Associate diploma and have a practical approach that appeals to experienced teachers who wish to undertake their first formal study in current pedagogy or those who simply have a desire to extend their knowledge and professional expertise. For more information, see the Certificate Teacher syllabus in the Manual of Syllabuses or the Teaching Digital Syllabuses.

 

Associate Teacher of Music Australia (ATMusA)

The Associate Diploma is regarded as having a status equivalent to the Associate Diploma in practical and theoretical music subjects. Associate candidates receive the diploma after successfully completing three sections: a written exam, the completion of a teaching folio and a practical exam. For more information, see the Associate Diploma syllabus in the Manual of Syllabuses or the Teaching Digital Syllabuses.

 

Licentiate Teacher of Music Australia (LTMusA)

The Licentiate Diploma builds on the knowledge gained by teachers who have achieved the ATMusA and focuses on the quality of teaching and the broad understanding that is required for the teaching of Level 2 syllabuses. Licentiate candidates receive the diploma after successfully completing three sections: a written exam, the completion of a teaching folio and a practical exam. For more information, see the Licentiate Diploma syllabus in the Manual of Syllabuses or the Teaching Digital Syllabuses.
