Get free access to Classical 100


Classical 100 is a fantastic collection of 100 carefully selected pieces of music and activities for you to share with your families over the coming weeks. You don’t have to be a music teacher to use Classical 100. Now, thanks to special support from our friends at Decca Classics and Classic FM, you and your family can enjoy listening and learning together too.

ABRSM’s Chief Executive, Michael Elliott, said: “We’re incredibly proud of what Classical 100 continues to achieve in 6,000 schools around the country but have always believed that parents have a fundamental role to play in supporting their child’s music. Many families are currently spending a lot more time together so this is a great opportunity for them to enjoy music with each other and support the progression of those at home who are learning to sing or play an instrument.”

Classical 100 features 100 pieces of classical music, ranging from Bach to Bernstein and Handel to Haydn with challenges set for each piece. Each challenge includes a helpful guide and all the resources you may need to get started, so everyone can bring the magic of music into their homes.
