Certificate of Musical Achievement for Piano Program

On May 6, students of all levels demonstrated their yearly progress by performing two pieces (3-15 minutes) & technical studies for a panel of judges, who provided encouraging comments about their pieces & technique. The CMA program was established in 2017 with financial support from the George R. Schermerhorn Family Fund. It is designed to gauge student progress & provide a goal for future years (levels 1-12).

The CMS CMA program was established in 2017 by Dr. Holly Roadfeldt with financial support from the George R. Schermerhorn Family Fund. The family of former CMS Director, George R. Schermerhorn continues to support development of our faculty.  Dr. Roadfeldt developed the Certificate of Musical Achievement Pilot Program to provide participating students additional motivation and a sense of accomplishment in their music studies. The pilot focused on piano, with plans to communicate with other CMS teachers to expand to other instrumental areas in the future (strings, brass, winds, and voice).
