MTB Exams are delighted to announce the launch of our new Performance Grades
We are adding a new set of Performance Grades 1-8 to run alongside our current Practical Grades. Our Practical Grades including all the current Technical Exercises, Scales, Reading and Listening Skills will continue to be available unchanged. However, for candidates who would prefer to focus on performance only we are introducing our new Performance Grades which do not include technical or musicianship elements and will be available to submit from the 22nd February and enter from the 18th February.
Our Performance Grades assess your ability to present a recital program. The exam consists of a performance of a selection of pieces, with no technical or musicianship exercises required.
MTB Practical Grades test proficiency with your chosen instrument and assess a broad array of technical and musical skills. These follow our syllabuses comprising a Recital section, Technical section and in most cases a Musicianship section. These exams are effectively our online equivalent to the Face to Face graded exams offered by other Boards, including the performance of pieces plus all the technical and musicianship elements you would expect to find in these.
