Trinity College London offers graded musical qualifications for musical theory and for performance in a range of string instruments, singing, piano, electronic keyboards, brass, woodwind instruments and percussion. The grading begins with the Initial Grade, and then are numbered from Grade 1 to Grade 8 in increasing difficulty. Candidates are rated under three categories – the performance of musical pieces, technical work such as scales, and supporting tests such as sight reading, aural tests and improvisation. Candidates are graded on a scale from 1 to 100, with 60 being a pass, 75 being a merit and 87 being a distinction. Candidates have some flexibility in the choices of pieces and tests prepared for each of these sections.
In addition to graded examinations, TCL also offers foundation, intermediate and advanced certificates in music. TCL also offers diplomas in music at three levels – Associate (ATCL), Licentiate (LTCL) and Fellowship (FTCL) for both learning and teaching.
