Flex Theory Exams Our Flex Theory Exam option allows students to write their theory exams in ANY location convenient for them on ANY day of the year! The exam can be written in any quiet location that the student and teacher feels is appropriate and the exam is administered by a presiding officer of your choice. This option allows us to email the exam to the presiding officer a few days before the scheduled exam date. The presiding officer must have access to the technology required to accommodate the electronic nature of the exams, as we only send them by email and they must be scanned and emailed back. Register for a Flex Theory Exam through your portal and then email with the following information a minimum of two weeks before the day you wish to write your exam. It’s that easy! • Date and exact time that the exam will be written. This is chosen entirely at the discretion of the student and teacher. • Name and address of the location where the exam will be written. This can be any quiet space that the student or teacher feels is appropriate. • Name, email address, and telephone number of the presiding officer. This can be any responsible adult other than the student’s parents or theory teacher. Other music or school teachers may be used, as long as it is not the teacher for the particular course being examined. The presiding officer that you select must have access to a printer and scanner. The exam paper will be sent to the presiding officer by email two business days before the student is scheduled to write. They will need to print the exam, supervise the student while he/she writes, then scan the completed exam as a single PDF file and return it by email. Exams returned in other formats will not be accepted. There are no other restrictions on who can proctor the exam. Practical Flex eExams Our eExams are practical exams that take place online. Originally developed for piano exams, we are now able to offer Voice and String eExams. For a complete description and video featuring our eExam technology, click here. These exams are booked online at least two weeks before your desired date. In-person Flex Practical Exams In some centers where we have an Examiner at “arms length” from the student and teacher, as well access to an appropriate no cost venue, we can schedule in-person exams outside of our seasonal sessions. These exams are booked online, but consultation with our office is recommended in advance. t my online form.

What’s in a Good Music Education Program? Introducing the Basics The most important goals of a program are to introduce young students to the basic elements of music: melody, rhythm, sound quality, harmonics, and pitch. Physical technique should be taught as part of making good music, not just muscle training. The same could be said about integrating the practice and theory of music into a program.  Learning to Listen. It is crucial that the child learns how to hear her/himself play, identify when something isn’t right, and know what to do to make it better. Therefore, students should learn how to practice, so the time in between lessons is productive and rewarding, even exciting. It will definitely help the young learner to choose pieces that are engaging. Parental Support Your support and encouragement for your child is critical to his/her progress in the study of music. For example, the instrument is kept in good repair, the family knows the practice assignments and expectations, the music is in good order, and the lessons are attended on time. Children should hear live music (age appropriate), and whenever possible, sing together. If you can, play together. Be a good audience. And talk from time to time with your child’s teacher about musical goals, practicing, and any other related subjects helpful to making music study a positive experience. Play Well with Others In the best of musical worlds, students experience playing with others sooner rather than later. Sometimes this can be with the teacher. But playing with peers is a special experience, including accompanying other instruments, which requires a unique kind of listening skill. Finally, a good music education program is one where the joy of music is part of the experience. Hopefully, music learning never becomes just another chore or obligation, but is part of a richer life.


"People make a mistake who think that my art has come easily to me. Nobody has devoted so much time and thought to composition as I. There is not a famous master whose music I have not studied over and over."

W.A. Mozart


Repetitio est mater studiorum

Latin proverb


Education is light, lack of  it is darkness


Russian proverb

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
