There are 3 exams in the Tchaikovsky Music School during the school year. The program for the 1st and 3rd exams consist of 2 pieces of music. One of them is compulsory. The level of compulsory piece is determined by the educational level of the student. The 2nd exam is a technical exam. The program for the technical exam is also determined by the level of the student. In order to get a certificate it is necessary to pass exams 1 and 3 for non-professional students.

All pieces should be memorized and performed by heart!
