For those not already familiar with the program formerly called Royal American Conservatory Examinations (RACE), this session introduced a very exciting program that offers great benefits and growth opportunities for both teachers and students. Both clinicians have been offering these certificates to their students since the inception of RACE/NMCP and openly shared their knowledge and ideas to help others take advantage of this wonderful opportunity now available throughout the United States.
This session provided a wealth of information that included the structure of the program and the details of participation from both the teacher's and student's perspective. It included the values and benefits of the program, a complete overview, the exam components, and how to get started. It also reviewed "Practices and Procedures" and an actual Grade 5 "Mock <noinclude></noinclude>

The Values and Benefits--Students
Students can flourish in this gently progressing curriculum and enjoy a clearly published path that always commends success. NMCP provides a well-paced, structured curriculum that balances skills and repertoire Repertoire may mean Repertory but may also refer to:
The Values and Benefits--Teachers
One great advantage is the NMCP prepared curriculum. It is a comprehensive, clear and well-organized program with leveled goals. A great benefit is the office management and support, including online teacher services that allow teachers to monitor their students' participation in activities and the results. It offers professional growth opportunities through the College of Examiners and requires no teacher obligations to participate. Another terrific advantage is that the program is managed by trained professional office staff, not volunteers.
Teachers also benefit from the clarity of the program and operating framework, especially the program management with permanent, accessible archives. The RCME offices and staff are full-time employees that "work the program." They schedule and coordinate the exams, liaise with the candidates and handle any problems that may arise. All materials are updated frequently, including the theory exams, which are newly created for each exam session.
Affiliation with the Royal Conservatory
The Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto, has been one of the world's most respected musical institutions for more than 125 years. Royal Conservatory of Music Examinations (RCME) has centers in more than 300 communities in Canada and more than 100,000 candidates annually. They train and manage the prestigious College of Examiners and manage the ever-present needs of executing the program.
This is a comprehensive, developmental curriculum created for students of all ages--children and adults. The curriculum starts at the very beginning levels of study (Preparatory pre·par·a·to·ry

2. Relating to or engaged in study or training that serves as preparation for advanced education: A & B) and works through ARCT, which is a level high enough to prepare careers. Examinations are available at all levels on a flexible schedule making participation easy for students to manage. The exam results are permanently archived at the Royal Conservatory of Music Examinations (RCME).
The practical exams consist of repertoire performance--one from each style period--one or two etudes (depending on the level) and technical skills (scales, chords and arpeggios). There are also ear skills, such as interval and chord chord, in geometry

The written co-requisites begin at Grade 5 with Basic Rudiments and move through Advanced Rudiments, Harmony and History requirements designed to complement practical study and help develop complete musicians.
Practices and Procedures
This section dealt with assessing entry levels, preparing for the exams--including lesson time management--exam registration, recommended materials and general information that would be helpful to teachers. When assessing entry levels, it was suggested that an assessment of technical skills, sight reading and ear training be considered, along with repertoire level.
Despite the fact that the curriculum is syllabus A headnote; a short note preceding the text of a reported case that briefly summarizes the rulings of the court on the points decided in the case.
The syllabus appears before the text of the opinion. based, it has built-in flexibilities. For example, the second etude e·tude

2. A composition featuring a point of technique but performed because of its artistic merit. is a "free choice" work. Students may play one etude from one grade higher or play an etude of their own choice. Students may also play another repertoire selection if they submit a "special request" form for a work that is not included in the syllabus.

When families see the enormous effort involved to create and maintain this stellar program, they can easily understand why the fees are actually a bargain! There are no fees for teachers, there is nothing to join--the only cost is the exam fee that students pay at registration.
How to get started
The first suggestion made was for teachers to gain familiarity with the program. Preparing an introduction and presentation for students and their parents was also discussed so that those unfamiliar with NMCP could clearly understand both the program and its value. A review of the materials and a workable calendar for preparing were also presented. Ear-training needs are easily met with a variety of software that can be used both at a teaching studio and at home. Samples of the many theory, sight-reading and other skill-developing books were presented.
Students can register on their own for examinations at www.nationalmusiccertificate.org. With their ID number they can schedule their own exams, review their results and monitor their own curriculum. And, of course, practice! They will be able to see their own progress as they move through the advancing grades, gaining the strong sense of accomplishment and greater insights into their own playing.
This session concluded with a Grade 5 "mock exam" with Amy Immerman playing the part of the average 12 year old taking her first exam, and Sheila Vail playing the part of the always pleasant and professional examiner. The candidate was taken through the exam step-by-step, playing her repertoire, technical skills, ear skills and sight reading. Sample commentary was then put up for all to see, along with a mark for each piece played.
For those not yet familiar with this certificate program--now is the time. Already present in 28 states, the future is bright for this rising star.
