5. Does my kids have to take examinations when they learn the violin?
Taking violin exams can help the children strive to improve and up their level of playing. It is also a way to gauge their progress. However, unlike what most music school preaches, we don’t expect all kids to go through the examination route. It will be optional based on the choice of the parents and the kids.
On the other hand, we do hold mini-recitals or concerts to provide opportunities for students to perform and gain stage experience. This helps to build the child’s confidence in performing, and also act as an alternative to examinations.
Our teaching philosophy is to inspire the kids to love and play violin. If they are motivated to learn, examinations will just be a validation, not a necessity.
