- ABRSM diploma candidates need to write a 1,100-word programme
notes for their exam performance. You can achieve a wide range of
qualities - from just interesting to the perceptive,
well-researched, original, relevant, pertinent, and persuasive. A
well-written programme note is not only an exam paper, and not only
educates the audience, but the writing process becomes a learning
experience, and the end result another tool of expression to
complement the musical performance.
