Exams at the AMEB Studios Hawthorn

It is recommended that you plan the trip to the Hawthorn studios well in advance and allow plenty of time to allow for traffic delays.

Aim to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled examination time, noting that it may not be possible for candidates who arrive late to be examined on that day.

On arrival, proceed to ground floor reception and present your completed Notice of Examination to the Venue Supervisor.

Due to space limitations we are able to offer warm-up facilities for a period of approximately 10 minutes only to candidates in Collaborative Piano Grades 7 and 8; Solo Piano Grade 8, Certificate of Performance, Associate and Licentiate; and accompanied instruments, including Voice.
