In Term III/2016, SMPAA will offer the ABRSM curriculum for our full range of instrumental and vocal subjects. ABRSM – stands for the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music which are revered colleges of music in Britain. Along with the Trinity College London curriculum that we already use at SMPAA, ABRSM will further enhance our offerings and choices in classical music and also in jazz piano for our piano students.

On 24th October 2016, SMPAA successfully organized a city-wide, ABRSM seminar, featuring Mr. Ryan Lewis (ABRSM Examiner & Malaysia National Consultant). The seminar brought SMPAA teachers, parents & students helpful information about ABRSM curriculum & qualifications, and especially about the exciting new performance-only diploma: The Associate of the Royal Schools of Music (ARSM) Diploma.
