The Achievement Program: Teaching Success in Music and in Life
Carnegie Hall is proud to partner with Canada's The Royal Conservatory of Music through The Achievement Program, a national set of musical standards for people studying music across the US. Independent music teachers in the NYC area are invited to learn more about the program this month during a lively information session held at Columbia University's Teachers College. At the session, pianist Bryan Wagorn—an alumnus of the program—will perform and talk about his experience.
Growing up as a shy kid in a rural town, music was a means through which I could develop my creativity, self-esteem, and sense of self-worth. My piano, theory, and music history lessons were a motivating factor in my life, and allowed me to meet people with whom I had a lot in common. The skills that I developed through regular assessments—discipline, time management, dealing with nerves, presenting myself—are things that I put to use on a daily basis in my professional and personal life. The Achievement Program has the potential to motivate and inspire musicians of all ages, and cultivate musical and personal growth.
Bryan Wagorn performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21, K. 467, with Kenneth Cooper conducting.
Find out more about Bryan's journey on January 30 at 7 PM, at the Milbank Chapel at Columbia University's Teachers College. Teachers participating in the program gain access to proven teaching materials, learn new ways to connect with students and celebrate their accomplishments, spark conversation with parents, and benefit from being part of an established tradition of excellence in music education—no volunteer hours, fees, or paperwork required.
