The AMEB Tradition — The Measure of Excellence

As one of the most respected bodies in this field AMEB's qualifications are recognised as a national benchmark across Australia. AMEB examinations are based on syllabuses designed by leading scholars and performers, regularly updated to ensure that they reflect an appropriate range of performance skills and the latest musicological research.

The content of these syllabuses is, wherever practical, published in affordable editions, ensuring that the cost to students of acquiring a full range of the set pieces is as simple and inexpensive as possible.

AMEB works with Examiners and teachers to provide encouragement for students through aspiration and a sense of achievement. AMEB believes that music education activities are vital to the cultural life of our communities.
