This Post is in regards to the recent updates that all teachers and students received from the Royal Conservatory and their online exam options.
Spring Examinations Update
We ask that parents discuss with teachers on the best possible options for the student, if you need any contact information please email to get in touch with your teacher
or directly to
Online theory exams may not have as much of an impact on students, but practical exams might have more implication such as piano quality (in tune or conditions of your home piano). Ms. Jessica does not recommend the online exam option, unless your student is very confident to perform in a formal way at home and parents are available to navigate technological problems if it arises during the exam.
If you are interested in the August 2020 exam, please hold off registration until we are more clear about our stay home government further into mid May and decide whether the August 2020 exam is go for your student.
Please let Ms. Jessica know if you have any concerns regarding the option you choose for your student. She can voice directly to RCM representatives if you need.
For students and parents wishing to postpone their exam, please see the following link for a form that will help you reschedule the exam.
Spring 2020 Form
In light to the Governments closures of schools in Alberta, Viva Musica will be moving all lessons online as a safety precaution of this COVID-19 virus prevention. Even though our lessons are mostly one on one or in small groups under 6 people at one time, we have prepared our MMS platform to facilitate this change.
We are here for our students best interest to continuing their learning, despite the current event. Children who are staying home without school may experience various emotional phases and it is best for adults (Parents & Teachers) to support them to carry out their learning routine as much as we can.
We would like to inform you that our My Music Staff Student Portal can support our online learning during the current situation. Although many parents may not think online video conferencing is as effective as face to face teacher student learning. This is the best solution we can do to ensure students are keeping up their learning while they are staying home the whole time without school or physical activities.
If you haven't set up a login for the My Music Staff Portal, we can resend you the link to do so. If you have any questions about setting this up, please do not hesitate to ask either myself (Katie) or Ms. Jessica.
All group classes will need to use Skype as it allows multiple caller interface. If your child has a private lesson with us, and you would prefer to use a different program such as WhatsApp or WeChat etc, please contact us and we can do our best to facilitate.
We would like to keep everything on our login portal with MMS (My Music Staff & Skype) as much as we can to facilitate the online lessons.
If there is an emergency please message or call
