Crescendo for Piano & Strings
Italian for “growing,” Crescendo encourages and promotes students’ growth at all stages of musical development.
The program aims to develop well-rounded musicians, recognize students’ progress and set benchmarks for the advancement of musical skills.
Crescendo is a year-long program, September through June.
The program guides students through graded levels of repertoire, theory questions and technical work. Crescendo also encourages development of musicianship, motivates students by tracking and rewarding progress, develops performance skills, provides an opportunity outside of the private studio for professional feedback, and helps develop the student into a well-rounded musician.
Students must be enrolled in a minimum of eight hours of private instruction per semester at MacPhail. Specific requirements for each level are detailed in the handbook. New students may join Crescendo in the Spring Semester; the cost will be prorated.
Student benefits include: Crescendo Labs, Juries, Gala Recitals, Award Ceremonies, and Play-a-Thons.
