The Music Teachers’ Board (MTB Exams) provides an exciting new way to take instrumental grades 1 to 8 in 26 instruments. Our exams are recorded in audio during the lesson by the teacher, submitted online and marked by our specialist examiners.
Our assessment model, of recording the exam in audio, is modelled on the GCSE music coursework structure and has been adapted to work with instrumental qualifications. We have moved this form of assessment into the 21st century with the introduction of an app to record and submit the exam.
MTB was developed over several years and our first Ofqual regulated qualifications were launched in March 2019. The board now have close to 900 exam centres in 40 countries.
The Music Teachers’ Board qualifications were created by teachers for teachers.
