Enter for a Singing exam
There are two ways to book an exam:
- download an entry form here and send it with the full fee to your local representative, or
- book online (UK only) using Trinity's new music booking service, currently being piloted at 40 selected UK centres. The service allows booking and payment online, and the ability to choose a date at the point of booking.
Please note: you should read the syllabus requirements carefully before your exam. If you do not meet all the relevant requirements, the examiner may refer your exam result to Trinity’s London office for review and marks may be deducted. Please see Information and Regulations and Syllabus infringements for more information.
Supporting Singing publications
Our Sing Musical Theatre series includes four volumes of classic and contemporary musical theatre songs. They are suitable for singing and musical theatre candidates, or anyone looking for a new, practical compilation of repertoire. Each book contains useful background and performance notes, handy singing tips and exercises and a backing track CD.
The Singing 2015-2017 syllabus and overlap arrangements
When the new singing syllabus is available, there will be a one-year overlap between syllabuses during which time candidates may offer pieces and technical work requirements from either the 2015-2017 or 2018-2021 syllabus, but not a mixture of both. There is no overlap for supporting tests, and the previous aural tests and improvisation tests can therefore no longer be used.

Full details of entry procedures and exam regulations can be found in our Information & Regulations booklet.
Specifications for aural tests and improvisation tests changed for all instruments on 1 January 2017. See the supporting tests page for new test specifications and information about sample materials.
