Piano students make grade

Every year, the Shuswap Branch of the Registered Music Teachers recognizes their students who have successfully accomplished advance-level piano exams with their prerequisite theoretical exams, Grade 8 to the level of Associate of the Royal Conservatory (ARCT).

The Royal Conservatory and Conservatory Canada send examiners to communities across Canada 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 to be post secondary.

This year, congratulations go to Emma Levins, Julia Brown, Rachel Bates, Holly McCallum and Jessica Neudorf for Grade 8 piano, and Ashley Fong and Elena Bruns for their Associate Diploma in Piano Performance (ARCT) from the Royal Conservatory of Music.
