STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

BE A MUSICAL LADDER CHAMP!

Every 3 months, students have achievement tests with their teachers and if they pass they get really cool colored bracelets, certificates, and at certain levels, trophies – customized to your music school. It’s a great way to monitor their progress in lessons to see how they’re doing. The Musical Ladder System is creating a big buzz at The Academy of Music in Grand Rapids!

On top of the Musical Ladder System, we encourage students to practice in between so they do hit those mile markers! Every time your student fills out a practice sheet they get a bracelet and a spin on the wheel. Collect all 6 bracelets before the year is up and get a trophy!

MUSICAL LADDER CELEBRATIONS

Congratulations to everyone who continues reaching their musical goals and keeps climbing higher on the Musical Ladder!
