Intermediate Program students may also register for private Body Mapping lessons, accompanied by a parent. Space is limited so it is first-come, first-served. Accompanying parents and guardians who wish to enroll must fill out a separate Body Mapping application form.

Intermediate Program pianists have the opportunity to participate in the Sonatina Jamboree, playing one polished and memorized movement from the following works with a string quartet in an informal setting: Clementi, Sonatina, Op. 36, No. 1; Kuhlau, Sonatina, Op. 55, No. 1; Clementi, Sonatina, Op. 36, No. 3 (Spiritoso); or Beethoven, Sonata, Op. 49, No. 2.

Students will study and polish two duets with a partner. A Music Reading Assessment form, to be completed by your teacher, will be sent to you upon registration. Music will be forwarded as soon as a suitable partner is determined. Please register early to facilitate this process

Cost: $500 CDN. Optional Classes extra
