Dear Guild Member:

This movement was founded by your pupiles; hence we cannot emphasize enough the importance of setting yearly Guild goals for each and every student in your studio.  I believe you will feel rewarded for your efforts and your students will be grateful for your interest and confidence in their ability to succeed.  For his/her encouragement
in the Guild Auditions (and the annual Guild Library Registration), every pupil becomes a winner of an award commensurate with his attainment; and, great or small, high or low, each certificate.  Diploma, lapel pin, $200 Scholarship or medal will be cherished as encouraging evidence of pianistic accomplishment.

Carefully study the complete set of goals and start each interested pupil toward achieving his/her first goal.  Afterwards, your task will become easier, since one Guild step leads to another.  The five-year, ten-year, and even the fifteen-year goals will soon be won by many in your class before you realize that the time has passed.  It is comparable to passing grades in school or earning report cards and diplomas as years go by.  What is learned from the study of literary subjects is also important in piano study.  Give your pupils the chance of lifetime to fell proud of their pianistic achievements!  Participation in the Guild will encourage them to continue the study of piano.  All Guild projects definitely assist in the prevention of piano "drop-outs."

Your fraternally,

Richard Allision
President
