About AMEB Tasmania
The Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) offers a system of graded music and speech examinations, including publications related to the syllabus and examinations. The syllabuses and supporting publications provide valuable frameworks for studies throughout school years and beyond.
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 Tasmania facilitates examinations of these syllabuses and a unique feature of these examinations is that, wherever possible, specialist assessment in specialist instruments is offered.
In many cases, progression through the AMEB system leads to university entrance and the establishment of professional careers in teaching and performing.
