Hi everyone,
Would someone kindly tell me what is a piano proficiency exam? Our child played in (for) the Guild last year but we have since changed teachers and new one is having him do the "Piano Proficiency Exam" instead of the Guild. I have tried to google it but it merely shows up on college websites as a prereq for graduation etc.
I would really appreciate some insight. Thanks so much!!

It's probably a local or state event. Just as the teacher and they should be able to give you more information.

As far as I know, there's no national program in the US that has something simply titled "Piano Proficiency Exam."

I think this is a question that should be addressed to the teacher.
