Time to enroll for Certificate of Merit 2019

October 1 marks the opening of enrollment for CM 2019!  Certificate of Merit (CM for short) 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.

I may have already mentioned this to your child at a recent lesson.  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 before the deadline of October 31.  The theory evaluations take place on March 3 and performance evaluations are on March 10, 2019.
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.
Please visit the MTAC website on the link below to learn more about the program and then feel free to ask me any questions.
