RSL Ltd are in the process of appointing a new administrator for NZ.  Once this occurs new examination dates will be loaded.

 Exam Centres available

During the past couple of years, the Rockschool examiner has travelled NZ to where and whenever an examination was needed.  Unfortunately this is no longer an economic viability, so we have made a rule that there has to be a minimum of 8 exams to a centre.  All students prepared for an exam will have the opportunity to sit, but it may be booked as a video examination or live feed. 


“I am extremely passionate and enthusiastic about teaching the Rockschool Vocal Syllabus. As my students love and easily relate to the great repertoire of songs, we are finding it very rewarding and beneficial.”

M. Williams - Vocal Teacher, New Plymouth

“Since it's introduction to New Zealand in 2005, our guitar school has regularly used the Rockschool guitar material as a constructive addition to our teaching syllabus. It's comprehensive and diverse material benefits students of all tastes and styles, from beginners who are new to guitar, through to tertiary level students preparing examination pieces.”
