Ofqual regulated instrumental qualifications from grades 1 to 8. Our exams are recorded in audio or video with our app, submitted online & marked by our specialist examiners.

Our exams offer…

Reduced Stress

We believe that the whole process of learning to play a musical instrument, including taking grade exams, should be a positive and enjoyable one.

Complete flexibility over exam dates

Our grades can be taken at any time without having to enter months in advance or accommodate exam periods and visiting examiner dates helping teachers to optimise a pupil’s rate of progress.

Convenience with no need to travel

There is no need to travel to examination centres. You decide where to take the exam. Teachers can now also conduct the exam remotely over webcam.

Optimised rate of progress

The wait to take an exam to accommodate exam periods and examiner visits can demotivate pupils as it is difficult to progress during this period and they can grow bored of playing the same music for months. Our exams can be taken as soon as you are ready.

Specialist examiners

Uniquely, Music Teachers’ Board exams are only marked by instrument specialists. Only a specialist cello teacher/player will mark a cello exam, a trombone specialist a trombone exam, a guitar specialist a guitar exam etc. Frequently, traditional methods mean the examiner is having to mark performances on instruments they cannot teach or play.

Lower Costs

Music Teachers’ Board exams are cheaper than traditional exams.

The whole experience was brilliant - all the stress taken away. All recorded on the app and uploaded in our own time. The results were super quick and so brilliant to be marked by a specialist examiner (singer). I will definitely be doing MTB exams again in the future.
