The Diploma in Music Performance Vocals, Piano, Guitar, Keyboard, Drums, and Bass provides students with the opportunity to become highly skilled artists, ready to perform different genres of music.
Established in 1887, the London College of Music Examinations (LCME) are one of the longest-established exam boards for the creative arts in the UK and the only one that is part of a leading British university, the University of West London.
Our diplomas are internationally recognized and include composition, conducting, thesis, and theoretical diplomas as well as performing and teaching diplomas in all instruments and drama/communication subjects.
Candidates are required to achieve 75% to attain the diploma qualification.
In the UK, LCM's diploma examinations are regulated by Ofqual, Qualifications Wales, and CCEA at Levels 4 to 7 of the Regulated Qualifications Framework. The diplomas are also included in the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
The lesson will take place once a week for two hours, online, with live teachers. All the materials of study will be provided and will be included in the monthly quota. At the end of each year, the student will gain a prestigious certification. The student can choose to take all three certifications for three years or only to take one, completing the course in one year.
There are two starting sessions, one in September and one in April. If we receive a higher number of requests, we can activate more sessions. The cost of the programme is 240 euros per month, excluding the exam quota.
