Student Option - Exam Preparation


At CMES, we offer the choice for students to prepare for music practical exams and theory exams. Exam preparation is a significant commitment, we offer music tuition for exam preparation if a student chooses to prepare for exams. The CMES has over 20 years’ experience in Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) exam preparation. Exam preparation is also available with other examining bodies such as ANZCA.


AMEB Piano exams are held at CMES, which allows students to practice on the actual piano in the room where the exam will be held. The familiar surroundings and the opportunity to get to know the instrument helps calm exam nerves and allows for a more comfortable experience. Other instrument exams may be held in other locations depending on exam enrollment numbers for the particular instrument.


The AMEB piano practical exams are held in June/July and October/November, the 2018 enrollment closing dates are –


9 April, 2018 for the June/July 2018 exams; and

27 August, for the October/November 2018 exams.
