In the United States, there are two different assessment programs for pipe organ. The oldest is the American Guild of Organists certification program (http://www.agohq.org/education/index.html), which awards the following certifications:
The other program is Carnegie Hall / Royal Conservatory's Achievement Program (http://www.theachievementprogram.org...organ_2012.pdf), which uses grade levels from 7 to 10 plus an Associate in Performance and an Associate in Teaching.
- Service Playing Certificate
- Colleague (CAGO)
- Choir Master (ChM)
- Associateship (AAGO)
I have a quick question: How do these programs compare? If you were consolidating the two programs, where would each of the AGO levels fit into the Carnegie Hall levels?
