Practical Exams Update – Portugal

We appreciate how much the cancellation of our exams has affected learners and we’re working hard on solutions to ensure they can gain their qualifications at the earliest opportunity.

Provided travel and COVID restrictions are lifted, we will open a booking period from 14 September – 28 September with exams to be held in November. We will continue to keep this under review as our ability to accept bookings remains conditional on the restrictions continuing to be lifted. An update to Applicants will be announced as soon as we can and our Representatives will provide further guidance in due course. We are looking forward to providing candidates with exams again and thank you for your loyalty and support at this difficult time.

On 7 July 2017, we saw hundreds of people come together to celebrate music and music education at our Shine event held at London's iconic Barbican centre.

There we celebrated the best of music education and were joined by over 200 young performers. At the event, we saw hundreds of people get excited and celebrate music-making and music education. We wanted to continue to highlight the skills and benefits that people from all walks of life have experienced #BECAUSEOFMUSIC, which is why we launched the new Because of Music website.

We hope you'll be inspired by the stories that we will feature here in the coming weeks and months, and if you have anything to contribute, join us! Share your #BECAUSEOFMUSIC story on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you could be selected to feature on the website.
