Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD Thurtdur, January 13, Musical aptitude testing for prospective students By RK SWIHART Staff Writer The United Conservatory of Music, with bead office in Cal- gary, has located In and will begin teaching music lessons Feb. 1. Originally a part of the On- tario Conservatory of Music, the company set up in Calgary 214 years ago and established its local studio in the Professional Building on Jan. 3. Art Lemay, branch manager, said the company specializes in musical aptitude tests for pros- pective students, to determine their music classification. There is no charge or obligation for this test. "These tests, about 20 min- utes duration in the applicant's home, will tell the parent the co ordination degree of the child, the degree of ear (tone rhythm, general in- terest, response to a person and said Mr. Lemay. He said the company operates studio instruction system. "We work not out of a university as e credited course but as a com- pany." He also said the instructors teach according to the Cana- dian grade standards, and that tbe company teaches by the group method which apparently allows the child to relax. Band work each weekend in- volves the students. The com- pany mil operate 20 concerts during the year throughout the province. Students are also prepared specifically for the provinc 1 a 1 competitions each year. Mr. Lemay said tbe com- pany issues a "report card" on the progress of each student ev- ery three months to give the parents an idea of where the child stands. The company provides instru- ments for the students and af- ter the student has passed a trial period and a further mu- sic test, he can purchase an in- strument from the company. The company has stu> dents in the province now in- cluding some already enrolled for instruction in Lethbridge. The capacity of the studio has been limited to 400 stu- dents. There will be two instruc- tors in the beginning and more added as the need arises. Secretary joins league only after third attempt WINNIPEG (CP) The ex- ecutive secretary of the Catho- lic Women's League of Canada has joined the league on her third attempt for member- ship. Valerie Fall, the main admin- istrator of the league for the last two years, twice tried to gain membership in the Ottawa branch for business and profes- sional women "but they ignored my letter both times so I just gave up." Miss Fall was accepted into the league last fall after super- vising the transfer of the league's national office from Ot- tawa to Winnipeg. Her position as executive secretary is a paid one and does not require league membership. Miss Fall co ordinates the work done by the national of- fice's five member staff, pre- pares the annual report sent to the league's parish councils, keeps the minutes of annual meetings and helps direct the publishing, the mailing of the league's magazine. Miss Fall said the movement of the head office to Winnipeg was necessary for economic reasons. Costs of naming the of- fice and publishing the national magazine will be tower in Win- nipeg and rising costs of office maintenance are expected to be halted. Miss Fan said the cost of maintaining tbe offices in a 90- year-old house In Ottawa owned by the league was increasing annually. She said snow re- moval alone cost f742 last win- ter.
