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 out each year to examine students providing a valuable comprehensive assessment of musicianship by including repertoire, technical tests, etudes, 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 goes to Hilary Vukadinovic and Micah Knutson, Grade 8 piano; Grace Neudorf and Sydney Victor, A.R.C.T.; Hannah Brackenbury and Stephen Moore, Grade 10; and Maclean Weightman, Connor Levins, Daisy-May Munro, Charlotte Paton and Eden Thomas, Grade 8.
