Certificate of Achievement

What is Certificate of Achievement?

Students receiving their Certificates of Achivement

Each spring, our students participate in Certificate of Achievement at Boise State University. This total musicianship program:

Annual 5-Part Evaluation

Levels include Young Beginner, Preparatory, and Levels 1-10. Students receive a personal five-part evaluation each year:

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

Each student receives a detailed written progress assessment from a skilled music educator, and their graded theory exam. The student also receives a certificate showing the level they achieved and their scores in each area.

Students also earn a point for each portion of the evaluation which they pass, up to four points per year. A trophy is awarded each time the student has achieved 12 points, and for students who achieve Level 10.

Enrollment and Location

The enrollment fee is due each November, and the evaluations are held each April. Enrollment is approximately $25-$40, depending on the student's level.

Certificate of Achievement is held at the Morrison Center at Boise State University. Park in the Brady Parking Garage.
