Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music

Do you play a musical instrument? If so, you will no doubt be aware of the many benefits of making music. Learning an instrument has been scientifically shown to improve all kinds of mental and physical skills, from memory and hand-eye coordination to creativity and self-expression. It can reduce stress and anxiety and can also be an excellent way to meet people and broaden your social life.

We know that u3a is more about exploring hobbies rather than taking exams, however ABRSM (the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music), has recently launched an innovative new music exam which focuses on your performance: you choose what you play and you’re 100% assessed remotely via video recordings. The great thing is that the exam room comes to you, allowing you to choose where and when to make your recording, meaning no need to perform live in a face-to-face exam.
