Tara Romero completes Level 3 and Level 4 in the RCM auditions

Tara Romero is my first student to test in the brand new Music Development program from the Royal Conservatory of Music, formerly named the Carnegie Hall Achievement Program.
Tara successfully passed Level 3 on June 3, 2012 and Level 4 December 2, 2012 and she is preparing for her upcoming Level 5 examination.

I really enjoy this program in addition to the MTAC CM and the Piano Guild auditions. The Royal Conservatory of Music program is an International examination judged against International standards. The judges are flown in for the examination and only the highest standards are expected in preparation and performance. Performance of 5 pieces, scales, chords / cadences and arpeggios, sight-reading and ear-training are tested in the live examination.
The examination repertoire is a very narrow selection of actually varied and fun pieces; they all need to be from the same level, unlike the MTAC Certificate of Merit where one piece only needs to be from the level tested all others can be the same or a higher level.

I am looking forward to have several new students test in RCM as well, so they also can have the experience to quickly learn pieces on a comfortable difficulty level and polish them to perfection for the examination.
