Online Grade Examinations

The LSMD Online Grade Examinations are performance based exams that focus on the development of a candidate’s technical ability, interpretation and repertoire. Candidates will not be required to submit scales, technical exercises, aural skills or sight – reading for the Online Grade Examinations.

Using any of The Leinster School of Music & Drama Music Syllabi simply prepare three pieces from your chosen grade syllabus, record yourself playing them and submit them via Dropbox.

The Process

Record yourself introducing and playing your chosen repertoire and share it with us on Dropbox. Once we successfully receive your submission we will send a confirmation email. Your submission will then be passed onto our LSMD examiner who will review your submission, grade you according to your submission and provide feedback on your performance.
