Given the recent spike in Covid cases and local lockdowns across Malaysia, we are now reviewing the feasibility of conducting the Theory Exam on 7 November 2020. You would have recently received an automated email with instructions about what to do on the exam day, but of course we are now having to review the status of the upcoming Theory Exam. We will update you again as soon as possible, but rest assured our priority will always be the safety of our candidates and exam staff.

Jazz Performance Assessment is an opportunity for musicians of any age or level to have their prepared work assessed by a musician with broad jazz experience, without the pressure normally associated with public performance or exams.

How it works

A free choice of repertoire – lasting no more than 15 minutes and broadly corresponding to the tunes included in ABRSM’s Jazz syllabus – should be offered, and performers will need to provide their own accompaniment where appropriate. Constructive comments on the performance are written by the examiner on the certificate that each candidate receives at the end of the assessment.
