RCM Exam Info

RCM Exam Info:
Our Piano Teachers are able to lead students to prepare for Royal Conservatory Exams. These exams are a recognized standard and give lessons a more formal purpose. Exams can be “written” at every playing level, and students showing keen interest in pursuing music are encouraged to begin the process of exams. RCM Exam Prep students must take 45-minute Maestro Lessons (Grade 2-6) or 60-minute Crescendo Lessons (Grade 7-10). Students will also be required to complete required theory/history work over the school year as guided by your teacher.
