​​​Attention, Teachers and Parents!
Spring 2021 Graduation Recital​

The Fall 2020 Graduation Recital, which was done via Zoom was a huge success! The students' excellent performances and the unique expertise that fellow teachers Barbie and Naomi have shared are so inspiring that everyone are eagerly looking forward to the next one. We thank the organizers behind the scenes who made sure Graduation standards are met and that details are covered. These efforts made the Graduation process possible and successful through ways which have not been done before in SMAC-BAPB's history.

The Graduation Process
Take note that video recording and submission for the Graduation process will be done in 2 phases:

Phase 1: Recording the required pieces for Graduation Evaluation consisting of Graduation piece and second piece. For students who will audition a piece outside of Suzuki repertoire starting at Level 4, there will be 3 required pieces. Check the required pieces in this page:
Graduation Levels.

Recordings for Evaluation will be submitted either as a YouTube link or a link to a Google Drive file with the uploaded videos. IMPORTANT: Test the links before submission.
Phase 2: Recording the Recital piece (1 piece) chosen by evaluators. Upload the recording onto Google Drive and submit the link. IMPORTANT: Test the link before submission.​​
