    Also, gr.10 piano students have the option to choose playing exams technical requirements and repertoire together in one exam, or at different exam times. It is quite demanding for young harp students to memorize all 6-7 pieces plus worrying about ALL other requirements (technical, listening, studies/excerpts and sight reading). I feel HARP is also the instrument that can have this privilege!

    Yes, I totally agree. I phoned in a question about a problem with the ARCT requirements about a month ago, and they said they’d get back to me. Today, I called again, and they had my question on file, but no answer yet! (The problem: they ask for an orchestra excerpt which is impossible to buy, and which is not in any excerpt books.) It would be great if they could compile and publish a book of the required studies and excerpts, etc., so that the kids don’t have to purchase hundreds of dollars’ worth of music in order to get one piece from each one. They do it for piano, don’t they?
