Testing & Trophies

Piano Guild

Yearly auditions are held in over 700 US cities and several 

foreign countries. Students are adjudicated by an 

international panel of judges and receive report cards, 

certificates, and fraternity pins. Programs are diversified

 to meet the needs of both students and teachers. 


Rhythm & Notation Exams

Enrollment Deadline: January 31. 

 To schedule testing with Michael 

Hoover call 703-728-0784. It requires 

setting  up 4 exams throughout the year

 ($35 Fee for each exam).

 Unlike the Piano Guild or ABRSM, students 

compete against each other and trophies 

are given out at the end of the year

 in the November & December 

Student Performances.
