Music Sales to exclusively distribute London College of Music's new syllabus

Music Sales Limited has entered an exclusive distribution agreement with the London College of Music (LCM) for its new syllabus release.

“It’s been a tremendous effort from both sides to get to this point and we expect a very positive response from our trade customers to this growing genre of music learning,” said Music Sales.

LCM’s graded examinations in Popular Music Vocals are regulated in England by Ofqual (formerly QCA), and by the corresponding authorities in Wales (DfES) and Northern Ireland (CCEA). They have been placed on the Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) at Levels 1, 2 and 3.

LCM has launched the full series of nine graded handbooks to accompany the syllabus, from Steps 1 and 2 to Grade 8. The focus of the new syllabus is on creativity and development of an individual style. The new supporting tests have been devised to develop technical skills within real world contexts, ensuring that singers build up knowledge of a wide range of styles and develop the ability to communicate with other musicians from the earliest level.

The songs featured in the new handbooks reflect the huge diversity of genres within popular music.

“We are excited to have been able to include both massive chart hits from artists like Taylor Swift and Mark Ronson alongside a selection of classic songs from the past six decades, encouraging an exploration of many different styles and the development of an individual personality,” said LCM. 

Included within the books are all of the materials needed to prepare for an LCM Popular Music Vocals exam; each section being supported by a full range of audio downloads from the LCME website, including backing tracks and demonstration recordings.

Released on August 29th 2017, the books are available for pre-order now.
