Celebrating Student Achievement 

The Musical Ladder System®

The Conway Institute of Music is the only music school in the Arkansas that gives their students the opportunity to earn special color wristband bracelets (kids and teens love them!), trophies AND certificates for passing musical tests with the Musical Ladder System®. Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder System®” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.

More importantly when our students have a test coming up, they
practice more, their parents are proud, their teachers are proud, and everybody wins!
