RCM Remote Exams are still available all year ‘round! They are a convenient and flexible way to support achievement. Students can complete their practical (instrumental) exams, on their own instrument at a time and place that is convenient for them! Theory (written) exams can be completed online at any time.
We encourage students to discuss with their teachers how a remote examination can help them achieve the next step in their musical journey.
In-Person Practical Exam Health and Safety Policies
Updated March 21, 2022
The health and safety of the RCM community continues to be our number-one priority as we transition back to in-person exams. To provide an enhanced environment for both students and examiners, please note the following:
- We ask students to be accompanied by only one parent or guardian, except for voice and instrumental exams where both one parent and the collaborative pianist are allowed.
- Individuals will make a personal decision regarding the use of masks, and it is important that everyone respects the choice made by others. We recommend face coverings; however, they are not required.
- Students must wash or sanitize their hands prior to their exam.
- Wipes will be available for keyboard sanitization between exams
