You may have heard of the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM), the British Columbia Conservatory of Music (BCCM), Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) and many other schools of music.
They are all accredited and professional music training institutions, and have generally equivalent exams. These institutions ensure that students receive a high standard of music education and assessment.
When I began taking piano lessons, my teachers started me in the RCM, which is based out of Toronto, ON, and their curriculum has become the national standard in Canada. I followed their piano syllabus for practical and theoretic exams, and received feedback from examiners and certificate of achievements for completing the grade level.
Exams provided an incentive to polish my pieces and ensure that a high level of technique, sight-reading, and listening skills were incorporated in my music education.
