A new syllabus for the Archbishop’s Certificate in Church Music has been introduced. As before, it caters for those within the Church of Ireland who wish to pursue the training scheme.
However, the new syllabus is highly flexible, in recognition of the interest expressed from people of other denominations. It is designed to suit organists of different denominations at all levels of experience. It is now possible to enrol for examinations without being a student on the training scheme.
The syllabus is available here: ACCM Syllabus 2021.
Exams will take place twice yearly, before Christmas and in early summer. Any student of an appropriate standard can enter for any level (there are no prerequisites to any exam). For more information or to express interest please contact the Hon. Secretary, Jacqueline Mullen at firstname.lastname@example.org

The course has been in place since 1991 and the first group of students completed the course in 1994. To date, 99 students have completed at least one year of the course; 60 students have successfully completed the full three years.
