Music and Culture
Queen City Royal Academy of Music LLC (QCRAM) is an internationally minded school. In addition to playing music from various cultures and styles, I strongly encourage all students to participate in the Associated Board of the Royal School Exam (theory and practical). The exam provides the student with the most prestigious measurable piano certification in the world, allowing them to pursue a valid future in music if they desire.
