Please help students like Bridget get the recognition they deserve. As a piano teacher in Scarborough-Guildwood, with many students that are children or teenagers,  I often observe my teenage students juggling the demands of their high school studies and their music studies. I would like to see their efforts rewarded by having  Royal Conservatory of Music examination certificates recognised for Grade 9 and Grade 10 credits just like they are for Grade 11 and 12. I care about this because I believe that music is an important educational activity that we should be encouraging as much as we possibly can.

Currently in Ontario, RCM examination certificates are accepted for credit for Grade 11 and Grade 12. Specifically, Level 7 Practical and Level 7 Theory (formerly Intermediate Rudiments) of the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto are accepted for credit for Grade 11 and Level 8 Practical and Level 8 Theory (formerly Advanced Rudiments) of the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto are accepted for Grade 12. The practical portion refers to any musical instrument on which performance is examined. It includes voice (i.e., singing), but not speech arts. (The mark credited to the student is calculated by averaging the marks that the student has earned in the practical component and in rudiments or theory, as the case may be.)   

I would like to see this expanded to include the following:

Level 5 Practical and Level 5 Rudiments (formerly  Basic Rudiments) of the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto are accepted for high school credit for Grade 9.

Level 6 Practical and Level 6 Theory of the Royal Conservatory of Music, Toronto are accepted for high school credit for Grade 10.
