My boy, as noted in other open threads here, has completed his Associate Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) Diploma in Piano Performance. He completed that in 2007 when he was 15 years old. He is sitting for his LRSM (Licentiate...) later this year, and according to UK qualifications benchmarks, the LRSM is equivalent to Degree level for performance. He has been playing since age 5.
When I complete our college survey I will be asking college admissions folk if ABRSM qualifications earn any form of credit. But so far, it seems that ABRSM does not feature in the US at all. Even his new US boarding school know nothing about it.
Does anyone know of any good colleges that have given credit for this hard work? I know an audition will be used for admission, but an LRSM is a high achievement itself.
