Cambridge Arts Academy is the ONLY music school in the Greater Boston region that offers the Musical Ladder System!

Trophies, certificates and award wristbands to celebrate achievement.

At Cambridge Arts Academy, we’re invested in finding ways to improve our lesson experience and give our students more. That’s why we’re striving to help local music students achieve more by being the very first in the Boston area to license the Musical Ladder System ®. This is a proven system with the aim to get students excited about music while offering parents a direct way to keep informed on their child’s musical progress.

This music teaching system is used by many music schools across the United States and Canada to inspire music students to meet their musical goals through practice, and enhance their love and appreciation for music. Similar to karate belt tests, roughly every 3 months students will have a test with their private music instructor on what they have been working on.

Once they pass the test, they will receive snazzy color wristbands with the name of the level they passed – each level has a different color! They also will receive a certificate of achievement, and once certain milestones are reached, they will earn a personalized trophy with their name on it. When our students have a test coming up, they practice more, get better at their instruments, their teachers are proud, their parents are proud – everyone wins!

While the Musical Ladder System ®” multicolored wristbands are fun to show off to friends, and the certificates and trophies look great, they most importantly serve as tangible reminders of working hard towards a goal and seeing something through, which is important and applicable in many areas of life beyond music.
