Piano exams showing what you have accomplished in piano this year will be the end of April or first of May. If you have had lessons less than one year, you will play one piece with the music and one from memory for a judge. The longer you have had lessons, the more you play. For this you get a ribbon and certificate and the judge awards points based on how much you have learned for the number of lessons you have had. The judge offers suggestions to help you. Trophies are earned for every ten points, getting larger with 20, 30, or 40 points.
