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.
