TORONTO -- Practical music exams have been a nerve-wracking rite of passage for generations of students, but for the first time, their critical performances are happening in the comfort of home.

Peter Simon, president and CEO of the Royal Conservatory of Canada, says the 134-year-old institution has been developing online content and shifted that into overdrive when COVID-19 hit. The option to earn a certificate virtually will be a permanent offering for the RCM.

When pandemic restrictions were imposed across the country, the Toronto-based musical education organization believed it was important to pivot online so that the self-expression, cognitive development and fun that music provides could continue, Simon told CTV’s Your Morning Monday.
