As a charity, we invest £6 million in music education annually in both the UK through our Royal Schools partners and internationally, providing resources and guidance to those wishing to develop their musical ability.

The beginning

ABRSM (The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) was founded in 1889 in response to a proposition by Sir Alexander MacKenzie, principal of the Royal Academy of Music, to Sir George Grove, director of the Royal College of Music, that their two pre-eminent musical training institutions unite to create an examining body ‘inspired by disinterested motives for the benefit of musical education... which would genuinely provide a stimulus and an objective for a high standard of achievement’.

The new body was designed to provide an impartial and authoritative alternative to privately owned examining institutions that were widely perceived to be motivated more powerfully by mercenary concerns than by ABRSM's desire to promote high standards of musical education and assessment.

The first Board

The first Board that governed under MacKenzie and Grove and the chairmanship of Lord Charles Bruce consisted of such luminaries asSir Arthur Sullivan (a prolific composer most famous for his comic operatic collaborations with librettist W. S. Gilbert),Sir John Stainer, Sir Walter Parratt,Sir Charles Stanford and Sir Hubert Parry, a leading choral composer best known for his setting of William Blake’s poem, Jerusalem. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales (the future King Edward VII) was an actively involved president and held annual meetings of the new examining body at his home, Marlborough House.

Sir Hubert Parry himself outlined the founding principles and aims of ABRSM:

“For the most part the objects which approve themselves to us are not so much the award of well-deserved certificates… but to give people something definite to work for...and also to give people… opportunities to be intimately acquainted with the finest kinds of musical art, and to maintain standards of interpretation and an attitude of thoroughness in connection with music which will enable it to be most fruitful of good.”

The first syllabus

An ambitious first syllabus for the inaugural exams of 1890 aimed at ‘a standard so high that the certificate granted may be regarded as a distinction worthy of attainment’, a founding premise that has been retained through all subsequent modifications of the assessment schemes.

The opening local centre examinations took place at forty-six centres in the United Kingdom and the two grades (named simply ‘Junior’ and ‘Senior’) were completed by no less than 1,141 candidates.

After the opening group of examinations demands were made for a syllabus which supported the needs of pupils younger than those capable of attempting the ‘Junior’ and ‘Senior’ grades after concerns were raised that bad habits formed at an early age could be impossible to eradicate by the time a pupil was able to undertake formal assessment. Two school divisions were immediately introduced (‘Lower’ and ‘Higher’) which were intended to precede the local centre split into ‘Intermediate’ and ‘Advanced’.

The growth of ABRSM

From the very beginning ABRSM had a duty imposed by the Charter of the Royal College to promote‘the cultivation and dissemination of the art of Music in the United Kingdom and throughout the Dominions’. By 1892, the University of the Cape of Good Hope had invited ABRSM to conduct examinations in the Cape Colony.

By 1895, Australia, New Zealand and Canada were all receiving visits from ABRSM’s examiners. Examinations were introduced to Malta in 1903 and the West Indies in 1907. By 1948, ABRSM had Local Representatives in South Africa, India, Pakistan, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), Malta, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), Cyprus, Singapore and Kenya.

The examinations offered by ABRSM rapidly grew in popularity during the twentieth century. Annual entries numbered 30,000 by 1914 and its authority was extended to include the Royal Manchester College of Music and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music in 1947. By this time, candidature had topped 100,000.

By 1981 ABRSM was examining in excess of 460,000 candidates a year in a wide variety of instruments.
