Students may choose piano, voice, or composition as their primary track of study. Pianists and vocalists are expected to take an annual performance assessment through Con Brio (online) or the Royal Conservatory Development Program. Those on a performance track must also participate in at least one studio recital or the MusicStars Online Music Festival. Composers must submit a composition for feedback to the FLM Composers Forum. All students are required to take theory exams through the Keynote Independent Theory Service or the Royal Conservatory Development Program. Students must display growth in their studies, practice regularly, and bring a positive attitude to the lesson. They should also maintain excellent attendance and be prepared for lessons with all materials.
Students who meet or exceed studio requirements, complete given assignments, and maintain enrollment for the entire academic year are eligible for the Studio Excellence Award.
