How to participate

Trinity examinations are available to everyone (amateurs, professionals) regardless of age. Any teacher (private, school, college) may submit candidates for examination. There is no membership fee for the teacher. There is, however, an examination fee that is paid by the candidate taking the exam. Trinity examinations are available in the areas of Music, Music Theory, Drama & Speech (including Musical Theater), Shakespeare, Speech Communications and English language (ESOL). Syllabuses are available free of charge to anyone who would like to have them. Please feel free to contact your local representative if you would like hard copies of the syllabuses. If there is no local representative in your area please contact Lum Fun Lee, the North American Coordinator, for further information.

Syllabuses may be downloaded from the relevant sections of the Trinity website.
