Graduations can be a great source of anticipation, motivation and inspiration for parents and students when well prepared. After a long period of review and preparation the SMAI teacher will inform the parent/ child that they may now perform all the songs by memory for a recital or take a video recording. The graduation videos are sent to SMAI for an assessment. The lead teacher of instrument being studied will assess the recording with a minimum of one other teacher or an ARSA teacher trainer to determine if the student has reached ‘graduation standard.’ Students will receive helpful feedback and assistance whether they pass or need to repeat the assessment. Successful ‘graduates’ will receive a SMAI graduation certificate and recognition in the biannual SMAI newsletter graduation announcements page.
NEW!: Graduation Assessment Fee:
Starting January 2015 a fee will be charged for each successfully completed graduation to offset the cost of the examiners. This fee schedule is for the Jabotabek area only. SMAI will continue to subsidize graduations from outside of Jabotabek.
