The Achievement Program, a new partnership between Carnegie Hall and The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto
The Carnegie Hall Royal Conservatory Achievement Program will create a nationally-recognized standard of musical achievement for people of all ages independently studying music in the United States, offering a sequential course of study for students to follow from beginner through advanced levels. Modeled on the internationally-renowned program and examination system developed by The Royal Conservatory in Canada, The Achievement Program will motivate music students (children and adults) to strive for excellence through participation in individual student assessments with professional adjudicators, enabling them to celebrate their accomplishments and track their progress. For younger students, it will assist parents who seek a better understanding of their children’s level of performance and musical growth. It will also support and empower independent music teachers by providing both opportunities for high-quality professional development and innovative teaching resources.
Teachers and students can participate in The Achievement Program anywhere in the United States. The program will hold assessments several times a year with upcoming dates and registration information listed on its web site. Students of all ages can currently take assessments in 90 US locations, with the number of locations expected to grow as the program develops.
