It’s already time to sign up for the Clavier-Werke Theory and Musicianship Test Week!
PIANO STUDENTS: The week of January 22nd is the Clavier-Werke Theory Test and Musicianship Week at our studios for piano students. Piano students will sign up for a test time that will occur instead of their private lesson and theory lab.
ALL OTHER THEORY LAB STUDENTS: The only guitar, voice, violin and cello students who will need to sign up for a time are those enrolled in the theory lab. These students will still have a private lesson at their regular time in addition to the testing, also the week of January 22nd.
Students have been preparing all year for these exams. Some students will go on to take the official Whitlock Theory Test at Concordia University on Saturday, February 3rd. If you are unclear about whether or not you should sign up for a time, please consult your teacher. Thank you!
