Live exam registrants must read the social distancing guidelines to be followed:

  1. Any person who enters Crossings Christian School on Saturday, April 17th must wear a mask that fully covers the nose and mouth for the duration of their time in the building.

  2. Any person who enters Crossings Christian School must also receive a temperature check upon entering the building.

  3. Participants must not be more than 30 minutes early to their assigned examination time and must leave shortly after they’ve completed their exam.

  4. Each examination room will be disinfected between each performance. All touchable surfaces (including stands, chairs, and door knobs) will be wiped with a disinfectant wipe.

  5. The keyboards in each exam room used for accompanists will be cleansed with a disinfectant wipe between each use.

  6. Participants and families are requested to maintain a distance of at least six feet from other participants or families.

If a participant requires quarantine, an option to take the virtual exam will be provided. Please contact the ASTA-OK Board right away if a student can no longer attend the in person exam due to COVID exposure or positive test.

Those unwilling to observe these guidelines will be asked to leave the campus and offered a virtual exam.

The virtual exam will be formatted to best recreate an in-person exam. Students will meet online as follows:

  • Exams will be scheduled and collected by a “Room Monitor” who is a member of the ASTA-OK board, they will contact you with about your assigned exam time

  • ASTA-OK recommends using a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer; you must have a webcam (an external microphone is recommended but not required)

  • Please make sure you are close to your WiFi access point, or use a cord to connect directly to the internet, for the best signal

  • Be prepared for your video meeting: have instrument tuned before, set-up your video so you and both your hands are visible, the monitor may ask for you to move if needed

  • No accompaniment is required, it will be best for you to play with no piano for the examiner to hear clearly

  • Level 2 and above requires sight reading; our room monitor will display the sight reading on your computer/tablet screen, students will have a 30 second study time and then play

  • After the exam is complete, graded evaluations forms distributed to participants, and all video recordings will be deleted. After videos are collected it could take between 1-2 weeks to allow evaluators to complete the process

If you register for the virtual option you will not have the option to change to live, in-person option.

$30 for Foundation-Level 3
