The London College of Music (LCM) is one of eight schools forming part of the University of West London, a university well-known for forming creative professionals.

The LCM is the largest specialist music and performing arts institution in the United Kingdom and offers a wide range of international examinations in music, drama and communications. These examinations are spread across a variety of subjects within each area, catering to a wide range of abilities. Markham is the only school in Lima recognized as a Latin American representative of the LCM authorized to provide these examinations.

Every year a considerable number of Markham students participating in the school’s Instrumental & Vocal Programme sit LCM examinations; the majority of them passing with excellent results. Our students take these examinations at different levels in their corresponding instruments as well as singing.  Secondary 3 & 4 students, as well as those IB students who take Music as an options course, are strongly recommended to sit the LCM Music Literacy international evaluations (Grade 3 to Grade 5) and the IB Music Examinations respectively at either the standard or higher level.

In 2016 there were over 100 LCM candidates from Markham College with 85% of these scoring Merit or Distinction.

As a recognised LCM testing centre in Peru, Markham College is also able to offer LCM Examinations to all qualified musicians. In 2016, more than 300 candidates from Lima and Arequipa sat these LCM examinations.

Markham College provides a great opportunity for musicians from all schools and Institutions in both Lima and Arequipa who would like to sit these examinations, from very beginners (Early Learning) up to the highly advanced. The Fellowship Diploma is the highest available qualification LCM offers.
