Music Syllabi

Our aim is to promote and support all students at every stage of their musical learning journey, by providing an external and objective analysis of their progress through an extensive music examination system.

We cater for all levels of candidate from Elementary to Senior Certificate level within the Local Centre examinations  and an extensive range of syllabi are offered on keyboard, string, wind, brass and percussion instruments and voice.

Group examinations are also offered through the chamber music, recorder group, class singing and orchestral syllabi and Recital Medal Certificate programmes are available to encourage students to develop the art of performance.

All of these are examined throughout the 32 counties of Ireland. Our team of examiners travel throughout the country to examine candidates in their own locality.

All RIAM Local Centre Exam Syllabi (except piano) extended until December 2019

The RIAM Local Centre has decided to extend all syllabi, except piano, until the end of 2019. In 2019 candidates and teachers will have the option of working from the current or the new syllabi.

The forthcoming piano syllabus and albums will be available at the end of June 2018.
