What is the The Certificate Program?

The Royal Conservatory Certificate Program (The Certificate Program) provides a recognized national standard and sequenced program for people studying music privately, from beginner through advanced levels. The program's examinations allow students to track their progress and celebrate their accomplishments. The RCM's assessment program develops complete musicianship by including technical tests, etudes, repertoire, ear tests, and sight reading in each practical examination. The program accelerates the development of musical literacy, increase understanding of the vocabulary, grammar, and syntax of the musical language, and encourages an enriched understanding of stylistic and structural awareness.

The Certificate Program's examinations have been used for high school and college credits.


Do I have to start with the RCM stream right away?

At CW Music, our beginner piano students (Levels 1-4) may choose to begin piano studies with the Piano Adventures Method (no exam) or the RCM stream (exam). The Piano Adventures Stream is usually the most preferred option, as theory is integrated in the lesson and paired with repertoire in the method book. Preparation for a RCM practical exam includes studies of etudes, repertoire, sight reading, and technical, all components a student is tested on. RCM Theory is a separate exam and therefore a separate course due to the volume of material.


Once a piano student completes Level 4 or 5 of the Piano Adventures stream, they are automatically placed into the RCM stream, beginning with Level 4 or 5. Levels 1-4 theory exams are optional. Level 5 and up are required to take RCM Theory Exams to receive the completion certificate of their respective level. This is the mandatory curriculum of the RCM, and not CW Music. The RCM administer the exam, and all exam fees are payable to the RCM.


What is a RCM teacher?

RCM teachers at CW Music have years of specialized training in their field and the exam experience to prepare students for their own exams, in accordance with the RCM syllabus. These teachers have obtained their RCM Teacher Certification or equivilent.
