It all started in 1889, with a proposition that would change everything. Sir Alexander MacKenzie, principal of the Royal Academy of Music, suggested to Sir George Grove, director of the Royal College of Music, that their two pre-eminent musical training institutions unite to create a new 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, ABRSM, was designed specifically to provide an impartial and authoritative alternative to privately owned examining institutions, which were widely perceived to be motivated more by mercenary concerns than a real desire to promote high standards of musical education and assessment.
Founded in 1889, we have a long history but our mission has stayed the same: to nurture a love for music, and to inspire achievement in it. At ABRSM, we believe that everyone, wherever they’re from, should have access to high-quality music-learning.
Our partnership work is never one-off – we build long-lasting relationships and support ongoing projects. We advocate for music, playing our part to ensure the future of music education and its place in society. Working towards this goal for over a century means that we’re a trusted voice at a boardroom table as well as on a concert stage.
Led by our governing body our staff members, examiners and volunteers work with passion and dedication to make learning music what it should always be: a joyous and life-enriching experience.
At Trax we are delighted to be associated with ABRSM supplying a wide range of their products.
