A contemporary music college has become an official exam centre recognised by Rockschool (RSL Awards).
The London College of Creative Media’s (LCCM) new status will enable young people to obtain internationally-recognised contemporary music qualifications by taking their exams within its facilities in Southwark.
Dr Simon Jones, Principal at LCCM, in Union Street, said: “It is a great honour for us to join this exclusive group, dedicated to helping aspiring musicians gain their sought-after qualifications.
“Hosting these exams allow us to be part of a wider community of people passionate about music, allowing LCCM to support young musicians in London.”
The RSL examination board, launched in 1991, offers tailor-made graded music exams up to Grade 8, and diploma qualifications in teaching and performance.
