These, our most advanced performance awards, follow on from our Grade and Certificate exams, taking musicians up to a professional standard of performance and musical understanding. We offer Recital Diplomas for classical and jazz musicians and Pro-Music Diplomas for session musicians with a focus on professional practice.
These qualifications examine instrumental and vocal teaching to individuals and groups. They cover both theory and practice, and include observation of your teaching. The highest-level FTCL Diploma is based around your original research into music education and is assessed by fellow music professionals.
Theory and Composition Diplomas
These exams focus on analytical concepts and procedures, and require an extensive knowledge of music history in the Western classical tradition.
