2019 Central Conservatory of Music Examinations
Learning music teaches joy, discipline, and inspires creativity. Learning Chinese instruments also connects you to the beauty of Chinese culture. As part of this process, taking examinations will help students measure their progress and develop confidence in their chosen instrument.
The Central Conservatory of Music of China (CCOM) is a well established institution in Beijing that holds examinations internationally for students learning Chinese instruments, including erhu, pipa, yangqin, guzheng, dizi, ruan, sheng, and suona. The BC Chinese Music Association (BCCMA) has partnered with CCOM to host these annual examinations in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal for the past 14 years.
