Certificate of Merit – Enrollment starts now!

It’s that time of year again – time to register for Certificate of Merit on oboe! CM is a performance and study program designed to grow with the students to give them performance experience and to help make a more well rounded musician.  It involves a performance of prepared technique (scales, etc), sight reading, and solo literature.  The last several years has been wonderful seeing the growth and dedication as my students follow this course of study.

Please discuss this with your child and let me know by October 16 if you think your child would like to participate.  That will give us enough time to choose an appropriate evaluation level and solo pieces before the deadline of October 31.  The theory evaluations take place on March 11, 2018, and the performance evaluation is on March 18, 2018.  


Once you decide to participate (first time CM students only), please let me know the email address you would like to use to create an online account for your child. I will enter the email on my online account and then that will generate a link to the email you have provided.  When you receive the link you will need to click on the link and create an online account for your child.  


If your child has done CM before and wants to participate again, let me know and I will begin the enrollment process for this year’s CM.  Once I enroll your child you will receive an email asking you to confirm information about your student.   


Payment will be made online by the parents once the enrollment period has closed, between November 1-10.


Please note that participation in CM is NOT required as part of the studio.  While everyone must play in the end of the year recital, I do not feel that I can make this a requirement.  I can say with certainty that it will be a very rewarding endeavor for any level of student who wishes to participate.
