Celebrating Success

Tuesday, August 9, 2022 by Ford Barker | Studio News

clapping_hands.pngCongratulations to Evaristo for receiving First Class Honours on his RCM Level 5 Practical Piano Exam.  Well done! Evaristo is an adult student and I am taking the liberty of quoting the RCM Adjudicator as her concluding comments reflect my sediments exactly:

"It was a pleasure to meet you this morning, Evaristo, and be your adjudicator. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement, made even more special as this was the first time you have taken an RCM exam. I wish you continued joy in your musical journey as you progress to Level 6 and beyond."

Website Launch

New_Website_Launch_fbp.jpgIt gives me pleasure to announce our new website is now live. This redesign symbolises the post pandemic world we have woken up to. It's a different world.

My Music Staff is the host of this site. We have been using this music studio management software for well over one year. I adopted this software originally to facilitate online lessons and I fell in love. It is very well designed and the web hosting feature is no exception.  

I am not alone in this sentiment. My Music Staff is a Canadian company located in Burlington, Ontario and has grown rapidly. It is now used internationally and very popular. In fact, during our recent AGM meeting of the Central Toronto Branch of ORMTA (Ontario Music Teachers' Association) we decided to conduct a Teacher Workshop on My Music Staff in the coming year.

Website Highlights

  • A slick and elegant appearance.
  • Both the Student Portal Log In (which is accessible on the side panel of every page) and Registration Form are seamlessly integrated.
