Welcome to The Royal Conservatory of Music New Teachers' Community

The RCM New Teachers' Community will guide teachers who have little or no experience with The RCM through every step of The RCM Certificate Program, from perusing the Syllabus to helping students complete their first successful examinations. Join RCM Ambassador and Examiner, Jonathan Roberts and Allyson Stout, who is the RCM Business Development Lead for the southeast region of the US, as well as a violinist and music technologist, on Tuesday, July 30th at 11 AM EST to ask questions and learn more about this new initiative and about how The RCM Certificate program can support you and your students.

What is memory and how do we use it in music?

Music is a useful aid to memory because it provides many opportunities for repetition in a variety of different forms, in a manner that can promote much deeper feelings than simple lists. This makes music both easy to memorize and an aid to memorizing other things.
