The exams, which are based on international standards and administered by a professional adjudicator, help students to set goals, give them the chance to evaluate their work, and reward them with positive reinforcement for their practicing. The MEP faculty helps students to prepare for the practical exams. In addition, MEP offers afternoon preparatory classes in music theory, ear training, and musicianship.
