Praveena Ratnavel

Flute student Praveena Ratnavel,10, received both a Certificate of Excellence and a National Gold Medal for her flute assessment from the Royal Conservatory of Music’s Music Development Program. Praveena attends Sage Canyon Elementary School and studies flute with Tiffany Covell.

According to Janet Lopinski, senior director of academic programs at the Royal Conservatory:

“Each year The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program awards Certificates of Excellence and National Gold Medals to top-achieving students.” [Awards are given in April for the previous year’s assessments.]

“Certificates of Excellence are awarded to students achieving the highest mark in their center and/or in their state on their Music Development Program assessment and who have also completed the theory co-requisites for their respective level and discipline.

“National Gold Medals are awarded to students achieving the highest mark in the country on their Music Development Program assessment and who have also completed the theory co-requisites for their respective level and discipline.

“These awards are an exceptional distinction — the result of hard work, dedication, talent, and a testament to skill and creativity. They also represent a national standard of musical achievement upheld by the invaluable support you provide to your students.”

As stated on the The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program website, “The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program provides a recognized national standard of musical success through an effectively sequenced course of study from beginner to advanced levels. The Music Development Program inspires excellence through individual student assessments and allows students to celebrate accomplishment and track their progress with others across the country.”
