At Sprouts we teach piano in English! We teach students from age 4.
Do you know…. Piano students in the UK take an exam. In Japan, Eiken or TOEIC are well-known English tests. I have never seen a piano test in Japan though. Maybe I don’t know about it, but it seems uncommon…?!
In the UK, a lot of piano students take a piano exam. The most popular is called the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal School of Music). They have 8 grades. Grade 1 is the first grade, and Grade 8 is the highest level. Actually, you can take this exam in Japan, but only in Tokyo!
I think taking an exam is a good motivation for students. What do you think?
