“My students participated in the Piano Proficiency Examination for the first time this year (2018) and we all agree that it was a positive and enjoyable experience. It is a great way to keep students motivated to practice as they are working towards a musical goal and it offers them a way to measure their progress on a regular basis. We love the flexibility of scheduling as well as repertoire choices. I highly recommend this program to all professional piano teachers who would like to offer the best to their students.”

“Thanks so much for creating such a great curriculum! It’s wonderful to have measurable goals for my students. We love the fact that we can jump in at any level and begin. Elise is very quick to answer questions and I had quite a few!”
Developed in 2011, this system of testing, has filled the void where other piano exams fall short.
