Certificate of Merit

Students who are enrolled in Certificate of Merit participate in an annual evaluation. Experienced evaluators hear students perform selected literature, technique elements and sight-reading. Students also complete a written music theory exam, which includes ear-training. This program is suitable for students who are highly motivated, willing to commit to regular lesson attendance and practice. There are fees to participate, depending on category of enrollment and level. Please contact the studio for the current fee schedule.
