THE SYLLABUSES


Syllabus changes, March 2018

Please note that we have substituted a small number of songs within our Rock & Pop 2018 syllabus; details are given in the FAQs. The revised syllabuses are available below.


Performance is at the heart of Trinity’s Rock & Pop exams — whether self-taught or taking lessons, learning for fun or heading for a career in the music industry, these exams help musicians develop valuable playing skills and achieve their musical ambitions.

In the UK, Grades 6–8 are eligible for UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) points for those applying to colleges and universities. Please see UCAS points and Progress 8 for more information.

The exams are supported by a range of resources that provide essential support for learners:  

  • graded songbooks containing all the songs needed for the exam, and performance tips and background information on the songs  
  • demo and backing tracks for the songs in the books, as downloads or on CD  
  • additional Trinity Rock & Pop arrangements suitable for use as own-choice songs, check here for the latest additions  
  • session skills example tests books.
