ABRSM Theory Exams Summer Term 2020
The ABRSM is currently working to find a potential solution to offering Theory and Practical exams for the Summer Term. We shall update this page as more information becomes available. Alternatively you can visit ABRSM directly.
Summer Term 2020 3.45-4.45pm Tuesdays (Half-Term 26 May)
28 Apr, 5 May, 12 May, 19 May, 2 Jun, 9 Jun, 16 Jun, 23 Jun
We are delighted to work in support of the Music Department at Wetherby Kensington, in support of the Head of Music, Mrs Fiona Dalzell.
Using a combination of the acclaimed series of Chelsea Quavers’ Music Puzzles©, CHENGA!© the ABRSM Theory syllabus & Aural elements of ABRSM Practical syllabus, pupils learn to read, write, transcribe, perform and compose music in a fun and engaging way. What pupils learn will greatly enhance their understanding of not only their instrument, but music as a whole. Each pupil progresses at his/her individual pace. Ideal for instrumental and non-instrumental pupils.
Small Tutor Groups
Small Tutor Groups of an average of 4 pupils to one Tutor provide for a healthy balance of 1:1 tuition and group interaction. Each pupil is given a personalised music folder in which to keep all their work and projects.
Tracking your Child’s Progress
Each week a summary of your child’s progress is recorded. This enables the Music Department to be kept fully informed, and we can provide parents with feedback at any given point during the term.
ABRSM Theory Exam Successes
85% of our pupils obtain a Distinction or Merit, and 15% obtain a Pass, in all ABRSM Theory Exams. ABRSM exams are recognised by Ofqual (Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator) which regulates all national public exams such as GCSEs and A-levels. Ofqual is responsible for accrediting qualifications offered by ‘awarding bodies’ such as ABRSM. All ABRSM graded music exam certificates bear the Ofqual logo.

ABRSM Theory & Practical Exams
We prepare pupils to sit ABRSM Theory exams up to Grade 5 and beyond if required. We prepare pupils for the Aural & Sight Reading elements of Practical exams in all grades – both of which combine to attract approximately 22% of the overall Practical exam mark. For information on ABRSM Exam Accreditation click here.
Additional Skype tuition by appointment. This is particularly useful for exam candidates, or for those pupils wishing to advance their learning. Available during term time, half-term or holidays.
