Classical Piano

Our new Classical Piano syllabus (2018) features a blend of traditional classical forms with flexibility to choose contemporary repertoire.  Skills include sight reading, ear training, technique, keyboard skills (harmonization) and background questions to encourage and broadly assess musicianship.  All of our examinations  provide a nationwide system for evaluation and accreditation offering high school credit with various provincial ministries of education.

In 2021 we added many titles to our repertoire lists by Women and BIPOC composers. You can find a news post with more information here, and we have biographical information on these composers posted below.

Below you will find an updated Rules and Regulations document which includes an Introduction as well as a document outlining our Recital Assessment program.
