Testing & Trophies

Piano Guild

Yearly auditions are held in over 700 cities throughout the United States. 

Students are adjudicated by an panel of judges and receive report cards,

  certificates, and fraternity pins.  Fees vary according to level ($32 - $50 / Exam)

Enrollment is December 1 - February 1.  Auditions are in May.

Rhythm & Notation Exams

Enrollment Deadline: June 1st

 To schedule testing with Michael Hoover call 703-728-0784. 

It requires  setting  up 3  exams throughout the year ($35 Fee for each exam).

 Unlike the noncompetitive format of the Piano Guild, students compete against each other.  

Trophies are given out at the end of the year at the October / November Student Performances.

All testing must be completed by Oct 7th.

Performance Trophies

Performances are held every year in the Fall  (October - November).

YouTube Trophies

Students who post 7 videos on my YouTube channel receive a YouTube Trophy.

 Not all students like to perform in front of a big audiences

 so this is another option.
