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 2015-2018 Local Centre Exam Syllabi (except Piano) extended until December 2019

The RIAM Local Centre has decided to extend all 2018 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 new 2019-2022 Piano Syllabus and 2019 Piano Albums are now available.
