    The Achievement Program Hosts Free Workshops for Music Teachers Across US

    THE ACHIEVEMENT PROGRAM HOSTS
    OVER 30 FREE INFORMATIONAL WORKSHOPS FOR MUSIC TEACHERS
    ACROSS THE COUNTRY

    New National Program Created By Carnegie Hall and The Royal Conservatory
    Encourages Musical Excellence Across The United States

    (For Immediate Release – June 15, 2011)Carnegie Hall and The Royal Conservatory invite music teachers to learn about the Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Program (The Achievement Program), a national system of music study and assessment for educators and people of all ages independently studying music throughout the United States. Over 30 free interactive information sessions for teachers, highlighting the benefits of this new program, are scheduled to take place in communities across the US, with dozens more planned in the coming months. (full list below)

    Launched in March 2011 by New York’s Carnegie Hall and Canada’s Royal Conservatory, The Achievement Program provides a national standard for musical achievement, offering a sequential course of study from beginner through advanced level for people of all ages studying music. Modeled on the acclaimed examination system of The Conservatory, which assesses 100,000 students annually in communities across Canada, the program was created in response to feedback from parents and teachers throughout the US, requesting a top-quality nationally-recognized system to track students’ musical progress, celebrating their accomplishments.

    “The Achievement Program complements existing local and state music assessment programs, connecting students across the country through its national standard,” said Dr. Jennifer Snow, Chief Academic Officer, The Achievement Program. “This leading program provides a clear and meaningful path for recognizing musical achievement, empowering teachers to measure progress beyond regional borders and inspiring students to strive for excellence at a national level.”

    Central to the approach of The Achievement Program are periodic assessments for students—one-on-one adjudicator-to-student performance evaluations that also function as valuable teaching and learning opportunities. Students and their teachers select musical works appropriate to each student’s level from the program syllabi to perform for a certified professional adjudicator. In each practical assessment, the adjudicator evaluates a student’s performance of repertoire, studies (etudes), and musical proficiency skills. Following the assessment, each student receives a detailed written evaluation with suggestions for continued musical growth and, upon completion of a Program level, a certificate. Students are encouraged to work from level to level, building their musical skills. Program syllabi and assessments are offered for keyboard, string, woodwind, and brass instruments; voice; and the academic subjects of music theory, music history, and pedagogy.

    Upcoming teacher information sessions will feature an in-depth program overview and a demonstration assessment presented by leading pedagogues. All attendees will receive a complimentary teacher support resource package that includes a syllabus (vocal or instrumental), theory syllabus, online theory module, online ear training module, and certificate of completion.

    The Achievement Program differs from comparable assessment systems in its absence of membership fees, paperwork, or required volunteer hours for participating music teachers. The Program, which provides educators with high-quality professional development opportunities and innovative curricular resources, has been adopted by the states of Ohio, Massachusetts, and Wyoming as the official music teacher association state curriculum. Students of all ages can currently take assessments in 90 US locations, with the number of locations expected to grow as the Program develops.
