Fellowship in Music, Australia facts for kids
The Fellowship in Music, Australia (FMusA) is the highest qualification offered by the Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB).
The AMEB is a federated body which administers music examinations in Australia, and its Fellowship is considered a very prestigious award. To present for examination at this level, a candidate must have obtained the diploma of Licentiate in Music, Australia (LMusA) in the same subject.
An FMusA practical examination takes the form of a public recital, and is assessed by three examiners. Candidates must present a repertoire that is 80 minutes in length, and presentation from memory is encouraged (and required for some subjects). An interval between pieces is allowed. Candidates receive one of two grades at this level: "qualified" or "not qualified".
