CMS Director Simon Holt is committed to developing CMS into a first-rate academic music institution, encouraging its students to embrace music in a serious way.
Music instruction should be pursued as not only fun, or an after-school hobby, he believes, but as a thoughtful endeavor that can significantly enrich one across several dimensions, musically, culturally, intellectually, and spiritually. Similar to ranking systems used in many sports, the ABRSM language is being used to assess and communicate ability levels. Simon believes that shifting the emphasis toward something that is more purposeful and goal-focused, rather than simply meeting each week for a lesson, can be highly motivating to certain students. He believes that encouraging students in this way can make music instruction more meaningful, and encourages both students and parents to feel a greater commitment to succeeding musically. Students can opt to participate in the program by simply speaking with their teacher or Simon Holt or by contacting the CMS office for more information.
