FAIRVIEW International School has been chosen as the first institution outside the United Kingdom to be able to participate in the Music Medals programme by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM).
It is the world’s leading provider of music exams, which is also the UK’s largest music education body.
Music Medals are accredited assessments and teaching resources from ABRSM for those taught in groups.
ABRSM offers assessments to more than 630,000 candidates in 93 countries every year, and after a rigorous testing process of Fairview’s existing music programme, ABRSM had decided that Fairview will be the first school outside the UK to be able to offer the Music Medals platform to its students.
“This is an honour to both Fairview and Malaysia, because Fairview is the first school outside the UK to be given this honour, while Malaysia is the first country in the world, outside the UK where this programme will be offered,” said Fairview Global Head of Arts Kirstin Oliver.
Music and instrument is a mandatory subject in Fairview just like Chinese Language.
Oliver said other schools in Malaysia and around the world were also tested by ABRSM.
“Fairview is the only school, which rose up to the expectations of ABRSM,” said Oliver.
This was disclosed during the visit of ABRSM’s executive director Jeremy Phillips to the school last week.
