MSMVan™ has designed its own music program called “Musicianship” to encourage and support students in their early music learning journey. In these weekly classes, students will explore and learn note reading, ear training, singing back, and music theory. There are 5 levels in this program which prepares students for the RCM theory examination requirements.
