Trinity's new Singing syllabus is planned for release in March 2023.
From this release, the Singing Syllabus will no longer operate with an end date. It will remain valid until further notice and any planned updates will be announced at least 12 months in advance.
The March 2023 syllabus and associated songs will become available for use in exams immediately on the day of release.
The 2018–2023 syllabus will remain valid until 1 March 2024, giving a one-year overlap. Trinity will continue to increase the repertoire available to candidates through a continual programme of new publication releases. This will include a diverse range of exciting exam books, individual digital downloads, ebooks, anthologies and more. Most repertoire and technical pieces will remain indefinitely*. Advance notice of new publication releases will be available on the Singing webpages and the shop.
This innovative change in approach to our music exam syllabuses will make our exams accessible to more people, provide a rich and cumulative repertoire to choose from, and encourage candidates to continue performing the music they love for as long as they wish.
