The Riverina Conservatorium of Music (RCM) has been honored by the Australian Music Examination Board NSW (AMEB) with achieving a Certificate of Distinction for being in the Top 5 of most Outstanding Studio or Music School in NSW from Preliminary to Grade 6 as well as Certificate of Distinction for being in the Top 5 of most Outstanding Studio or Music School in NSW from Grade 7 to Licentiate.
AMEB qualifications provide a national benchmark and measure of excellence. They are recognized across Australia and Internationally.
Each year students from the Riverina Conservatorium of Music participate in practical AMEB NSW exams. AMEB offers graded examinations for a range of musical instruments (including voice) covering classical, popular and contemporary styles and techniques.
It is through these examinations that the RCM has been recognised as one of the top 5 music institutions in NSW for 2015.
“We are extremely honored to have the quality of the RCM’s teaching recognised again by AMEB NSW” RCM Director Hamish Tait said.
“The RCM has been very successful in achieving outstanding results with students participating in AMEB exams. We have for the past four years been awarded a certificate of distinction for high level results in the Preliminary to sixth grade category.
But now we have just been awarded the Distinction for outstanding results in both Preliminary to 6th and the advanced section 7th to Licentiate.
This is an extraordinary achievement and is directly related to the work being done by the RCM team. In particular, the results raise the RCM to recognition as a leading music teaching institution in Australia both metropolitan and regional."
