Certificate of Merit

FAVA is excited to offer voice classes for students in grades 1-12 which follow the curriculum standards for Certificate of Merit. In addition to learning songs, students will grow in areas which include vocal technique, sight-reading and music theory.  Instruction is in a fun, affirming atmosphere.  Here’s what MTAC has to say about the prestigious CM program:
The Music Teachers’ Association of California® (MTAC) sponsors the music study program Certificate of Merit® (CM). The program provides a standard of curriculum that requires students to strive for focused musical excellence in performance, technique, ear training, sight reading/singing, and music theory.
Initiated in 1933, the annual statewide program involves approximately 30,000 students in piano, violin, cello, viola, flute, French horn, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon, baritone/euphonium horn, voice, and harp. Students benefit tremendously from this educational opportunity.
