Performance Awards in Popular Music Vocals provide a new opportunity for the assessment of musical performance, whereby candidates submit either a video file, or a DVD of their performance, rather than attending an examination venue. Performances
are assessed by trained LCM examiners, using the same standards and criteria as are used for graded exams, offering candidates a reliable and independent assessment of their performance standard, while benefitting from the flexibility allowed by the submission process.
There are eight levels of performance award, as follows:
Performance Awards Equivalent Grade
Level 1 Grade 1
Level 2 Grade 2
Level 3 Grade 3
Level 4 Grade 4
Level 5 Grade 5
Level 6 Grade 6
Level 7 Grade 7
Level 8 Grade 8
LONDON COLLEGE OF MUSIC’s Popular Music Vocals syllabus has been developed for anyone wishing to improve their singing for pleasure and for those who wish to pursue a career as a pop vocalist. The exams encourage the development of technical skills within real world contexts, ensuring that singers build up knowledge of a wide range of styles and develop the ability to communicate with other musicians from the earliest level. The songs featured in these handbooks reflect the huge diversity of genres within popular music. Alongside some of the biggest pop tracks from recent years are a selection of classic songs from the past six decades, encouraging an exploration of different styles and the development of an individual personality. The handbooks include online access to demonstration and backing tracks for students to practice with at home.
