Church Music

There are four LCM Church Music grades (2, 4, 6 and 8) and three diplomas.

The standard graded exams consist of a performance of three pieces, technical work, sight reading, a viva voce and aural tests.

We also provide alternatives to our standard examination format designed to offer something different to our diverse range of candidates:

  • Leisure Play – a performance of four pieces, with an optional own-choice piece
  • Performance Award – a performance-based assessment by video submission
