​ギルド試験とは

1929年の設立当初よりACMが一番力を入れている活動は「米国ギルド・ピアノ検定試験」を毎年開催することにより、子供達やピアノを学ぶ方々が目的を持ってピアノ教育に向き合える環境を作る事です。

米国ギルド・ピアノ検定試験は、参加者に順位をつけません。

英語のAuditionの語源「Audire=hear→聞く」 に基づき、本検定試験の審査員は実技試験の演奏を一対一の環境で、最初から最後まで聴き参加者の演奏で優れている部分やこれから養えば強みに変わる部分を、的確に評価しアドバイスします。

この1929年に始まったギルド試験はアメリカでは “ギルド・オーディション”と呼ばれ、広く親しまれています 

 

 

Yearly auditions are held in over 700 US cities and several foreign countries. Students are adjudicated by an international panel of judges and receive report cards, certificates, and fraternity pins. Programs are diversified to meet the needs of both students and teachers. Programs are flexible and include repertoire as well as technical goals (musicianship phases).
