Music Theatre

LCME will be releasing an updated syllabus and brand new set of handbooks in the autumn, with first exams starting in the Spring session. There will be a two-session overlap – the old syllabus will be accepted for exams up to and including the Summer session of 2019.

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:
