Share the Celebration

The new Celebration Series® is coming March 2015!  Join us in the Celebration!

In anticipation of the March 2015 launch of the new Celebration Series® for piano, we are excited to invite piano students to participate in our Celebration Series® Video Countdown!

Students from across Canada and the United States are invited to submit videos of themselves playing one of our sneak preview pieces. The best renditions will be featured on The Royal Conservatory website and social media channels. Twelve selections, one piece from each level (Preparatory A through Level 10), are available to choose from.

We invite students from across Canada and the United States to participate. Our selection committee will review all submissions, and will choose one feature video from each level to be shared in a twelve week countdown leading up to the official launch of the new Celebration Series® in March 2015.
