ACTA’s students have consistently achieved the highest marks in the Northern Region and in New Zealand in the Trinity College Singing Syllabus. Highly respected vocal tutor, Doreen Donnell, a Fellow of Trinity College of London and student of the highly acclaimed vocal tutor Dame Sister Mary Leo, is well known for her considerable experience, knowledge and successes both herself and with students in vocal training. 

Singing examinations assess performance and technical skills at increasing levels of ability and complexity throughout the grades. Students are examined on musical exercises, performance pieces and technical knowledge.

Exam classes are usually once a week for half an hour. Tuition fees are based on the number of students in the class, and the duration time of the lesson. Exam Registration Fees (payable to Trinity College, London) apply and these can be found on their website
