Piano Forte Music School offers many opportunities for piano evaluations, piano recitals, and other performance-related activities. Graded music exams such as the ABRSM Exam (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music), MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) or the CM (Certificate of Merit) provide a structured framework for progression from beginner to advanced musician. Exams cover performance skill, technique, sight reading, listening skills and understanding of music theory.
Performing music in front of an audience inspires confidence and provides each student with the recognition they deserve for all their hard work. Creating goals, practicing and honing technical skills allows students to perform their best at piano recitals. And every student learns from watching other students perform. This is both inspiring and motivating.
