INDIVIDUAL STUDY PLAN
Individual study plan for ISMFA students is suitable for children and students, who wish to progress their own pace. This plan is compiled with regards to abilities and focus of the child/student and it is not obligatory to do the exam at the end of the academic year. Students can combine different genres (classical music, popular, jazz, rock) and are encouraged to perform at the school concerts (classical concerts, jazz rock concerts and even concerts accompanied by professional musicians).
INTERNATIONAL CURRICULA (ABRSM, LCM, TRINITY COLLEGE)
The International School of Music and Fine Arts Prague (ISMFA) offers the possibility to prepare their students according to the international curricula of The Associated Board of Royal School of Music (ABRSM), London College of Music (LCM) or Trinity College (TC). Each grade of this curricula is concluded by internationally acknowledged certificate based on which students receive internationally acknowledged certificate. International exams are organized in the partnership with the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, London College of Music and Trinity College (UK). The exams consist of a preparatory grade and related 8 other Grades (1 – 8), each designed for specific level (Grade 1 is achievable for a child/student of any age as well as for adults and so are all the upper grades). It is possible to start with the preparatory grade as early as the age of 6, but it is also possible to start with higher grade corresponding with the student´s level any time later. Following this international curriculum offers some great advantages. The thoroughly prepared and sophisticated curriculum is focused on a versatile development of the technical skills as well as the practical knowledge. Apart from an interesting and attractive obligatory repertoire (variety of styles and époques including jazz and rock), students also score in sight-reading, aural test and improvisation. When taking the musical part of IGCSE or IB at secondary schools, obtaining at least Grade 4 in ABRSM is an advantage. Moreover, submitting the certificates (students receive these after a successful passing of the exam) gives extra credits when applying for some Anglo-American universities - Grade 3 as minimum for non-musical majors and Grade 5 as minimum for musical majors (at some universities it is a must). ISMFA has a team of specially trained staff to prepare you for this type of exams. You can find more details regarding the registration and conditions of these exams here.
