Jazz Clarinet

There are eight LCM Jazz Clarinet grades, plus two introductory levels, four performance diplomas and three teaching diplomas.

The standard graded exams consist of a performance of three pieces, technical work, musical awareness, a creative response test and aural tests.

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

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