Sixteen students from the NTPPA received A-plus scores on the Royal Conservatory of Music examination. For any student to receive a high mark is already a huge success, but to have all participating students receive such grades is truly a record for the books.
To quote the Tampa Bay Times, “Recent statistics Jain passed on from the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program state that this year about 6.5 percent of the teachers had all their students achieve more than 90 percent on their exams. Of those, 79 percent of the teachers had only one student taking the exam. About 16 percent of all exam-takers this year have earned an A-plus.” To read the entire article, follow the link. http://www.tampabay.com/news/briefs/new-tampa-piano-students-score/2292540
