With a focus on nurturing creativity and developing self-confidence, our program allows students to work at their own pace. Our integrated curriculum encompasses repertoire from classical to contemporary, as well as etudes, ear tests, sight-reading, technique, and theory for over 20 instruments, voice, and speech arts and drama. Individual student examinations, delivered by one of our 300+ accredited examiners, enable students to track their progress and celebrate their accomplishments."
