Looking forward to the beginning of the fall session in my piano studio. Can't wait to introduce the new RCM Theory Syllabus to my students and implement all the great things I learned at the RCM Summer Summit!
I attended a really unique concert at the Grange of Prince Edward County last week. Yes those programmes are sitting on a wine barrel in a barn at a vineyard :). A very relaxed, intimate setting with 4 professional musicians from the NAC Orchestra! The Classical Unbound Festival featured four concerts this summer. I already have it on my radar for next summer.
I am so excited to congratulate Lisa Forsyth for earning First Class Honours in her Level 1 Piano Exam. You worked really hard on your first exam and it paid off. Way to go!
So proud of my students who excelled in the RCM Spring 2016 exams:
Sydney Claxton, Advanced Rudiments Theory - 1st Class Honours
Briana Bouchard, Level 2 Piano - 1st Class Honours
Paige Claxton, Level 1 Piano - Honours
And congratulations also to the following students who achieved Book Endings this year:
Emma McEvoy, Lisa Forsyth, Roni Buttle, Johnny Grus and Tommy Grus...well done!
Congratulations to Sydney Claxton for passing her Grade 6 Piano Exam with Honours in August - a huge accomplishment. I am so proud of her and excited to start working on grade 7 this fall. She is definitely on track to complete her OAC music credit.
It's great that the Royal Conservatory of Music offers 4 examination sessions throughout the year now so students and teachers have flexibility in preparing for exams when it fits the student's schedule.
Your hard work paid off this summer Sydney :)
