EMS Stage Achievement Certificates

EMS is keen that its small group tuition students take graded exams, however, the gap between an absolute beginner and Grade 1 is quite significant. In an attempt to bridge that gap, EMS has created 3 Stages, giving students concrete objectives and achievement certificates to work towards. Having a structured path and specific goals to aim for boosts a student’s confidence and enriches their learning experience.

EMS Stage objectives aim to give students a solid musical start and foster well-rounded musicianship, rather than limiting learning exclusively to exam pieces. Thus, alongside with the instrumental technical requirements and general musicianship skills, emphasis is also on aural development, musical literacy & theory, and performance. While there is suggested bibliography and resources in this handbook, teachers are free to use material of their own choosing.
