Music Theatre

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

The standard graded exams consist of a performance of two to four pieces and a discussion. At Grade 8 candidates will also have to read at sight one part of a dialogue from a libretto.

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

Syllabus

First exams for the 2019–2021 syllabus will be in the Spring session of 2019. There will be a two-session overlap – the old syllabus will be accepted for exams up to and including the Summer session of 2019.

The new syllabus includes a set of handbooks, which will be available from the end of November.
