Students receiving their certificates of merit

Certificate of Excellence is a total musicianship program that helps each student develop proficiency in the art of making music. The goals of Certificate of Excellence are to:

The Evaluation

Certificate of Excellence levels include Young Beginner, Preparatory, and 1-10. Students receive a personal 5-part evaluation each year:

  1. Technique
  2. Repertoire
  3. Sight Reading
  4. Theory
  5. Ear Training

Each student will receive a written progress assessment. Students earn 1 point for each portion of the evaluation which they pass, up to four points per year. A trophy is awarded once the student has achieved 12 points.


The enrollment fee is due each November, and the evaluations are held each April. The annual enrollment fee is $23 to $36, depending on the student's level.

Certificate of Excellence is held at the Morrison Center, Boise State University
