Rockschool Announce New Partnership With AMEB

Today, we're delighted to announce a significant expansion in the delivery of Rockschool Graded Music Exams and Syllabi in Australia, by confirming our new partnership with the Australian Music Examinations Board.

The AMEB is Australia's leading provider of examinations for music, speech and drama, and will start delivering Rockschool examinations from October 2015. The relationship will merge Rockschool's contemporary, industry relevant qualifications with AMEB's long standing tradition of musical excellence throughout Australia.

The partnership not only signals a historic shift in the delivery of music examinations in Australia, but will also provide a vast array of contemporary assessment materials and resources to Australian musicians and educators. The addition of Rockschool to the AMEB's offerings has been welcomed by AMEB General Manager, Bernard Depasquale.  We're excited to be working with the globally successful Rockschool to deliver the most up-to-date contemporary music syllabuses and exams in Australia,  he said.  The program's challenging and rewarding exams are designed to develop technique, musicianship and performance ability in musicians of all ages and abilities. It complements our extensive range of music syllabuses and will strengthen our position in the contemporary music sector. 

John Simpson, Rockschool Chief Executive also commented:

 Both the AMEB and Rockschool are world renowned awarding authorities, setting the standards for global music education. Rockschool is delighted to be working with the AMEB, our syllabi are mutually compatible and we share similar values and ethics. We truly feel it's a mutually beneficial partnership that will bring value and opportunity to our students, teachers and educators. 

Current Rockschool candidates in Australia will also benefit from having Rockschool under the AMEB portfolio, enabling them to take a Rockschool examination at more locations across the country. Rockschool exams will be held nationwide during October and November.
