Several Shuswap music students scale conservatory heights

Each year the Shuswap Branch of the Registered Music Teachers recognize their students that have successfully accomplished advanced level piano exams with their prerequisite theoretical exams, Grade 8 to Associate level (ARCT). Royal Conservatory and Conservatory Canada send examiners to the community each year to examine students, providing a valuable comprehensive assessment of musicianship by including repertoire, technical tests, études, ear and sight reading.

Each grade requires examinations also in theoretical subjects. Grade 8 is equivalent to Grade 12 school credits and grades above that are considered post-secondary.

Congratulations go to Ben Sui, Julianne Moore and Teslyn Bates for Grade 8 piano and Sarah Trentalance, Aleta Lu and Susannah Wark for Grade 8 and Jessica Brown, Gaila Hemphill, Timothy Weicker and Liisa Befus for Grade 10. Serafina Muto attained the ARCT level.
