The Musical ladder system

The Musical Ladder System is a music lesson rewards program that was originally created in South Carolina by music school owner Mr. Fort. Mr. Fort’s intent was to help students get the most out their lessons by helping them set and achieve goals at regular intervals. The Musical Ladder System achieved this, and so much more!

The Ladder is for all music students. The program is designed for all instruments and is just as powerful for piano lessons as it is for guitar lessons.

Similar to karate belt tests, every 90 days or so our students have a Musical Ladder Challenge with their teacher. When they pass, they receive really cool colored wristbands and a certificate of achievement for their level. At certain levels they also get customized trophies.


We have found that students get very excited when they have a musical challenge coming up and practice more to prepare for it. This makes their parents proud, their teachers happy, and the students exited about their lessons, everybody wins!

The Music Ladder challenges are a great way to encourage students to practice and work on music theory, technique and much more!
