Community Music School
Certificate of Musical Achievement for Piano Program

In 2017, CMS piloted a Certificate of Musical Achievement Program in Piano, under the direction of Dr. Holly Roadfeldt & with financial support from the George R. Schermerhorn Family Fund. Students of all levels showed their yearly progress by performing two pieces (3-15 minutes) & technical studies for a panel of judges, who provided encouraging comments about their pieces & their technique. The CMS CMA curriculum is designed with levels 1-12 to strengthen motivation and a provide a sense of accomplishment in students’ music studies. 
Congratulations to the 2018 certificate receipients!

The family of former CMS Director, George R. Schermerhorn continues to support development of our faculty. This year's Schermerhorn Family Fund Award was presented to piano teacher, Dr. Holly Roadfeldt. She will create a Certificate of Musical Achievement Pilot Program to provide participating students additional motivation and a sense of accomplishment in their music studies. The pilot will focus on piano, with plans to communicate with other CMS teachers to expand to other instrumental areas in the future (strings, brass, winds, and voice).
