RSL (Rockschool Ltd)
In 1991, RSL (ROCKSCHOOL LTD) created a unique set of products for a brand-new marketplace: recognised, graded qualifications for contemporary musicians. After successfully developing the market domestically in the UK, the company then expanded its operations into the international marketplace. Now active in over 40 countries, RSL exams can be taken in six continents across the globe.

RSL’s continued commitment to motivate and support students and teachers alike has seen us innovate in many new and exciting ways. By continuing to create engaging, contemporary qualifications, RSL has expanded operations from graded music exams, to the inclusion of teaching and performance diplomas, vocational qualifications (for the creative industries), and performance arts awards (for dance and musical theatre).

Rockschool has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the early 90’s. Starting out with graded music exams in only drums, bass, and electric guitar – exams are now available for acoustic guitar, vocals, piano, ukulele and music production – the latter was developed to reflect industry changes brought about by the digital innovations of the 21st century.

The company’s overseas success has profited from a multitude of reasons. Without the versatility and dedication of the staff at HQ, the professionalism and commitment of the international examiner team and the invaluable input from our global customers and partners, none of this would have been possible. Our group of passionate, international representatives diligently carry the RSL flag in each of their respective regions.

With subsidiaries now fully operational in China, India and Spain, the company has full-time staff stationed in three prosperous markets for the very first time, enabling us to fully immerse ourselves in international markets like never before.

Like our favourite musicians, our progression has been a product of positive, productive collaborations – and as we reflect on all we’ve achieved in the past few years, we’re proud to say that we can only think positively about what the future has to offer.
