March/April Tour Postponed to July/August
Unfortunately, due to a lack of enrolments for Australia & New Zealand's very first March/April tour, we have had to postpone the tour to July/August. Any candidates who have booked in online will receive a call from Big Music to process a full refund of fees paid towards the exam tour. Exam registrations will open 1st June for the July/August tour.
New Australian & New Zealand Representatives
Big Music Studios took over as the Australasian representative for Rockschool on June 1st, 2014. Like many of Rockschool’s participants, Big Music Studios is a tuition facility based in Sydney, Australia. Our administration team is made up of 6 people who will endeavor to answer your enquiries as quickly as possible. Please note: some requests or questions may need to be passed onto Rockschool HQ in the UK so we thank you for your patience while we obtain the correct information from above.

Please bear with us as we continue to update the Rockschool website.
New Booking Process
2014 saw Big Music Studios set up a new bookings system for all Rockschool exam bookings and payments. All candidates will register a profile, book an exam time & pay online using credit card. All candidates will also receive automated confirmation and reminder emails after completing the booking. Once a profile has been created, all candidates will be able to log in to see their exam booking and also book into the future.
Please note that your exam time may be changed slightly by Big Music Studios in order to keep the schedule as condensed as possible for the examiners travelling to your area. Big Music Studios will contact you if a change to your originally booked exam time occurs.
Candidates can currently register a profile however bookings will not be available until registrations open on the 1st February.
Big Music Studios has been working on further localising Rockschool in Australia. 2014 saw two training periods in NSW and WA for local examiners ready for 2015 with another training period currently being planned for March/April 2015. Eventually we hope to have at least 2 local examiners in each state.
If you would like to apply to be an examiner, please email through your interest and we will send you an application process form. All examiners are interviewed and approved by Rockschool HQ over Skype.
"Rockschool is a fun way to introduce young musicians to some foundational elements of music such as, stylistic versatility, reading music and timekeeping. I highly recommend Rockschool for any contemporary music program."
J. Bedoukian - C3 College.
"Rockschool Graded Music Exams help my students to set goals and gain confidence. I love that Rockschool gives them the skills required to be a musician in the real world, and gives them the valuable opportunity of ensemble playing. Kids love this aspect especially!"
